Key Lime Tarts
An elegant, low-carb dessert that’s perfect for your next cocktail party.

3/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
12 packets sugar substitute or equivalent of 1/2 cup sugar
4 sheets phyllo dough*
Nonstick butter-flavored cooking spray
3/4 cup thawed frozen fat-free whipped topping
Fresh raspberries and lime slices (optional)

Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: 1 tart (without garnish)

1 – Combine milk, lime juice, and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat.

2 – Add egg substitute; whisk constantly for 30 seconds to allow egg substitute to cook. Stir in sour cream and sugar substitute; cover and refrigerate until cool.

3 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8 standard (2 1/2-inch) muffin cups with cooking spray.

4 – Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on cutting board; lightly spray with cooking spray. Layer with remaining 3 sheets phyllo dough, lightly spraying each sheet with cooking spray.

5 – Cut stack of phyllo dough into 8 squares. Gently place phyllo stacks in prepared muffin cups; press firmly into bottoms and up sides of cups. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove from muffin cups; cool on wire rack.

6 – Divide lime mixture evenly among phyllo cups; top with whipped topping. Garnish with raspberries and lime slices.

*Note: Cover with damp kitchen towel to prevent dough from drying out.
