These little lime tartlets are the perfect tangy bite of lime with a hint of cream. They are also great with lemon or a combination of the two! They are keto, low carb, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and only have 1 net carb each.
My dad loves lime desserts so I wanted to make a new recipe for him. He enjoyed several of these lime tartlets at a family celebration last weekend. And they were the only dessert with no leftovers. I'll consider that a success.
This lime curd is amazing. I had to refrain from eating it all with a spoon while I was filling the tarts. It's that good.
Mini Lime Tartlets - Low Carb, Gluten & Sugar Free
Lime Curd Ingredients: butter, sweetener, egg yolks, lime juice, heavy cream
Mini Tart Shells: almond flour, coconut flour, butter, cold water
The shells and curd can be made up to a week ahead. You need to fill the shells right before serving. I put the lime curd into a piping bag to make this easier but you can also just spoon it on top.
(P.S. Piping bags are really cheap on Amazon. I use them much more often after finding these).

- 7 tablespoon butter
- ½ cup Joy Filled Eats Sweetener (or see alternatives in recipe notes)
- 5 egg yolks
- ¼ cup lime juice

- Make the lime curd. In a small saucepan over medium low heat melt the butter and sweetener. Cook until slightly thickened. Whisk in the egg yolks one at a time. Cook until thick. Add the lime juice and whisk until smooth. Add the cream and whisk again. Strain through a fine mesh strainer in case there are any bits of scrambled yolk. Put in a glass bowl or jar and refrigerate until cold.
- Make the tart shells. Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the ingredients in a food processor until the dough comes together. Divide into 24 pieces and press into the holes of a greased mini muffin tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely.
