Instructions

For the Raspberry Jam:

  1. Place a small plate in the freezer. You'll use this to test the thickness of the jam.
  2. Combine sugar, lemon juice and zest in a small sauce pan over very low heat and stir until mixture becomes like a thick liquid, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the raspberries and continue to cook on low for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. The raspberries will release their juices and the mixture will start to simmer.
  5. Remove cold plate from freezer and drop some of the jam onto the plate to test the thickness. If you can run your finger through it without the jam falling back into place, it is ready to go.
  6. Pour the jam into jars and seal them.
  7. Place the jars in the fridge and allow to completely set for 24 hours. The jam should be good for about two weeks.

For the Crust:

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Blend graham cracker crumbs in a Vitamix or blender. 
  3. Pour crumbs into a bowl and add the melted butter.
  4. Stir to combine and add more melted butter (a little at a time) if crumbs feel too flaky. 
  5. Press the crumbs into the bottom of your mini tart pans or one single tart pan. 
  6. Allow crust to bake in the oven for about 10 minutes to help the crust set before you add the filling.
  7. Remove from oven and add the filling.

For the Filling:

  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup of coconut cream, lime juice and eggs.
  2. Whisk the ingredients together until well combined. The filling should be thick.
  3. Pour the filling into your tart pan(s).
  4. Add small drops of raspberry jam (spaced out) on top of the filling.
  5. Use a butter knife to carefully slice through the drops of jam to create a raspberry swirl.
  6. Add tarts to the oven on a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes. 
  7. Remove from oven and place in the fridge for about 2-3 hours so the filling can fully set.
  8. Before serving garnish with lime zest and extra graham cracker crumbs, if desired.
