Ingredients
  1. 1 large egg
  2. 2 large egg yolks
  3. 2/3 cup sugar
  4. 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  6. 1 (6-pack) mini graham cracker crusts*
  7. Garnish: fresh blackberries, lime zest curls
  8. *For testing purposes, we used Keebler Mini Graham Cracker Crusts.
Instructions
  1. In a medium metal bowl, whisk together egg, egg yolks, sugar, and lime juice. Set bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water). Whisk constantly until an instant-read thermometer registers 180°, approximately 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, whisking until smooth.
  2. Pour curd evenly into 6 crusts. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface of curd, covering completely. Place tarts on a rimmed baking sheet, and refrigerate until chilled, about 3 hours.
  3. Garnish with fresh blackberries and lime zest curls, if desired.
