lime curd tart

What you do when you’ve started a new job and are working your tail off and don’t have time to cook, bake or post (I will stop there otherwise this will just get all whiny)?  You reincarnate what’s already kicking around in the fridge and then post about it two weeks later.

After eating our fill of cherry-lime rickey cupcakes at the end of September, I had a bit of the lime curd filling left.  There were also those graham cracker crumbs that had been in the freezer for God knows how long (and even after this, I still have some in there!).  I eyeballed a quick crumb crust using sugar and cinnamon to taste and enough melted butter to hold it all together, and then baked off a couple of mini tart shells.  I filled the cooled shells with lime curd and added berries and whipped cream on top.  Voilà– dessert made in record time.
