Martha Stewart's Key Lime Tart

One of the benefits to skipping out on this week's round of Tuesdays With Dorie is that it's given me a chance to catch up on some of the other recipes I've been dying to try this summer. I just bought my first tart pan last weekend from Cayne's, and it's a 9", non-stick Wilton beauty. I just had to put it to use. I've also had a ton of limes hanging around in my fridge for mojitos that just never materialized, so it seemed only natural to make a Key Lime Tart.

That other baking guru, Martha Stewart, had the perfect recipe. Although my tart didn't slice as cleanly as hers, I loved the flavour. It was perfectly tangy, but not so sour that it was pucker-inducing. Next time I'll use the leftover egg whites to make a nice meringue on top, which will help to camouflage any imperfections in the serving.

Luckily, it was just for me and my boyfriend, and neither of us are ever very concerned about a dish's appearance when it tastes good.

My favourite sweetened condensed milk trick -- letting it thin out a little in a bowl of boiling water.

My imperfect but tasty little slice.
