Baked Tart Pastry

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening dough, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all the dough is moistened (4 to 5 tablespoons cold water total). Form dough into a ball.

Good recipe, but REAL KEY LIME, is not green, it's more yellow. I would never purchase a green one or make one.....this needs a picture that is more true to the pie.

I havn't made this recipe but as a Floridian I could not believe you would call a green pie a Key Lime Tart. Of course once I read the ingredients and saw it called for food coloring (optional) I realized while it may taste authentic... it certainly wouldn't look authentic. Maybe I'm being picky but I think you should change the picture and take the food coloring part out of the recipe. I think people won't bother with this recipe once they see the picture.
