Walnut Lime Tart

Walnut Lime Tart

It is just a random cold, but enough to keep me home for two days with plenty of yuckiness. ….And what does one do when home sick other than take advantage of daylight for food photography? Hence, this tart.

This dessert combines elements from two recipes: the walnut crust from Cool Lemon Dessert (also known as Lemon Delight); and the creamy lime filling from my Schwarz Lime Pie (my spin on key lime pie using limes from my tree). I have such affection for my lime tree. If you have followed me for any length of time, you are probably sick of hearing about it – but I do. My big beautiful tree in my backyard produces the sweetest and juiciest limes I know.

Walnut Lime Tart

I had the idea for a tart like this is because, let’s face it …making pie crust is work. I have a great recipe here, and I make pie crust regularly – usually with savory intentions. But I often have to have that inner argument to talk myself into it. So, I wanted to make a lime dessert reminiscent of pie, but I wanted it to be E-A-S-Y.

Oh, and by the way – when I shot the photo of the limes above, I looked up and our newest family member, Spiderman, was peacefully looking on. Spidey was abandoned in a local park, and we adopted him through a rescue organization a couple weeks ago. He is the sweetest cat I have ever met and just a perfect addition to our family. The sweetness in this photo almost makes up for the lizard “gift” I just had to clean up from him.

Walnut Lime Tart

So… this tart! You want to make this tart! I am SO happy with this recipe! It’s delicious, it’s easy, and it’s much more foolproof than using pie crust and hoping the dough cooks all the way through. I love how the lime and sweetness are perfectly balanced – this dessert is not cloyingly sweet. Love, love, love this recipe …and I hope you do too.

    I’ve never tasted a walnut crust sounds delicious… price of limes is crazy. I heard a big report about margaritas not being served in places in Mexico because of the shortage… can you image? Thanks for bringing this to foodie friday.
