These were very yummy! Since I couldn't find frozen tart shells I substituted mini graham cracker shells and just filled and baked. We topped it off with some whipped cream. Thanks for sharing.

- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons key lime juice (fresh or bottled)
- 1 -1 1⁄2 tablespoon lemon zest or 1 -1 1⁄2 tablespoon lime zest, finely grated
- 1 dash salt
