  • 4 limes

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 egg yolks

  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger

  • 1 (9 inch) baked pie shell

  • ½ cup lime marmalade


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. Zest 1 lime, then juice all 4 limes. Combine lime zest, juice, cream, sugar, eggs, egg yolks, and ginger in a large bowl. Whisk until well combined and pour into the prepared crust.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.

  4. Meanwhile, heat lime marmalade over low heat until melted. Remove from heat and cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Pour lime marmalade over the warm tart and spread out evenly. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Cook's Note:

If you're using an unbaked crust, blind bake it first: prick the bottom all over with a fork, cover with parchment paper, and fill with dried beans. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until golden, about 30 minutes. Remove the beans and parchment and let the crust cool.

You can also use orange marmalade or ginger preserve instead of the lime, if desired.
