Recipe

Yield:  Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Pie Dough, made with butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 8 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 sprigs of mint

Equipment:

  • Six 3½-inch shallow tartlet molds

Directions

Use the pie dough to make 6 pastry shells. Bake thoroughly and set aside to cool.

Place the lime juice, 1 cup of water, and the sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in ½ cup water. Whisk in the egg yolks.  Slowly pour 1 cup of the boiling lime syrup into the yolk mixture and blend it thoroughly.  Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from the heat, add the butter and mix.

Pour into the pre-baked tart shells and let set for about 30 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
