Lime Tart

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by evelynathens

Lovely and tart. The slices of lime on top give it a lovely, rustic look. The dough has to 'rest' in the refrigerator for one hour before being rolled out.

I served this at a lunch for our clients and I must admit got a mixed reaction. I am not a sweet eater but I liked it because it wasn't too sweet. I must admit I liked the crust, maybe it was the small amount of cinnamon. It is an easy recipe to make. I served it with whipped cream. Well done Eve.
