This is an easy way to make a sweet, tart, and light dessert. The sweetness comes from vanilla wafers and sweetened condensed milk, the tartness from fresh lime juice, and the lightness from whipping the egg whites.

1/4 c

How to Make Sweet and Tart Lime Chiffon Custard Tart

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • 2Mix the cookie crumbs and melted butter thoroughly.

    This is most easily done by using a food processor to make the crumbs. Then pour in the butter and pulse a few times to mix.
  • 3Set aside about 1/4 of the buttered crumbs. Make an even layer of 3/4 of the crumbs in a greased, 7" x 12" glass baking pan or similar lasagna pan.
  • 4Beat the egg whites until stiff.
  • 5In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks and the salt. Thoroughly mix in the sweetened condensed milk.
  • 6Add the lime juice to the egg yolk mixture. Stir gently for about 1 minute until the mixture is smooth and thick.
  • 7Fold in the egg whites, continuing to fold until the egg whites are thoroughly incorporated but keep the mixture as airy as possible.
  • 8Pour the filling mixture on top of the crumbs and spread to even. Distribute the reserved 1/4 of the crumbs on top of the filling.
  • 9Put the tart into the middle of the 350 oven and bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the tart comes out clean or an instant read thermometer shows an internal temperature of 175F.
  • 10Allow to cool to room temperature. It will collapse slightly.

    Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator.
