From another friend - Julie. This is the perfect finish when you want something sweet but not too rich. It is reminiscent of key-lime pie.

How to Make Citrus Tart


  • 1In a medium bowl, mix crushed graham crackers, cinnamon, butter, and brown sugar until well-blended. Press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9" tart pan with a removable bottom.
  • 2Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, with wire whisk or fork, stir sweetened condensed milk, lemon and lime juices, lemon and lime zests, and egg yolks until well-blended and thick.
  • 3In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. With a rubber/silicone spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the lemon-lime mixture.
  • 4Pour lemon-lime filling into the crust and bake the tart 20-25 minutes until the filling is just firm.
  • 5Cool the pie on a wire rack, then refrigerate until well-chilled, about 3 hours. Garnish with strips of lemon and lime peel.
