Ingredients:

  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Bar Dough
  • 1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) 1/3 less fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel) or regular cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 cups thawed fat free, reduced fat or regular frozen whipped topping
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • Additional lemon and lime quarter slices, peel curls or grated peel (optional)

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 325º F. Paper-line 24 muffin cups.

CUT dough along pre-scored lines; place one piece of cookie dough in each muffin cup.

BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cookies will be puffy. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

BEAT sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese in large mixer bowl until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping. Divide mixture into two medium bowls. Stir lemon juice and lemon peel into one bowl and lime juice and lime peel into other bowl.

POUR about 3 tablespoons lemon cream cheese mixture, followed by the lime cream cheese mixture, over 24 cookie cups. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Decorate with lemon and lime quarter slices, curls or peel, if desired.

TIPS:
• Using low and reduced fat cream cheese and whipped topping helps to make these treats lower in fat.

• Love lemon but not crazy about lime? Simply double the lemon juice and grated lemon peel in the recipe and leave out the lime, and make 24 lemon tartlets. Tartlets may be frozen in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Allow to thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

    Lemon Lime Perfection

    Jennifer Young from Somersworth, NH

    I have been looking for a summer time recipe that has 2 of my favorite flavors (Lemon & Lime) and this recipe was perfect. Very easy to make and a fantastic flavor. It's perfect for the warm day where you need something just sweet enough. Yet another winner that has been added to my family favorites.

    Sweet/tart and tasty

    Mary Clark from WEYMOUTH, MA

    These were the hit of our Easter Dessert table! I only made the lime since I had several other lemon desserts. I've sent many people to the site for the recipe. My daughter was ecstatic when she saw that I was making them for her Graduation party this weekend. The recipe is so easy it will probably become my new dessert to bring everywhere this summer.

    Mini Tartlets

    I made these and took them to a church meeting and was immediately asked for the recipe. They were a hit. We love key lime pie so I made it using both the lemon and lime as stated in the recipe. Was so easy!

    Sounds good

    Pamela Rodriguez from ALBUQUERQUE, NM

    I saw this recipe and they sound AMAZING but I live in a dorm room with no place to cook/bake. Good thing is, the cafeteria here does take suggestions and those I've given them, they've made. So I printed it and will put it the suggestion box today - I've got my fingers crossed.

    Mini Lemon Lime Tartlets

    IDA BEEK from LANDING, NJ

    Added the Lemon Lime Tartlets to our Easter dessert table this year and they were scrumptious. Sweet yet tart, light and another keeper for the next time I want to make a great dessert. They disappeared so fast I should have doubled the recipe.

    A very tasty, very classy dessert

    David Ramos from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    This makes for a great dessert for a dinner party. I made a batch, albeit a bit larger for the party. It was like having individual key lime pies for each guest. My only variation on the recipe was I made my own cookie dough and whipped cream. Needless to say, everyone enjoyed it very much.

    Lemon Lime Tartlets

    Debby Scott from Warsaw, NC

    Very easy to make and very tasty. Even my son liked the flavor. Want to try it with strawberries. To dress them up a little without using lemon/lime slices I started with a dollop of whipped topping and added sprinkles. Then - had my husband bring home yellow bunny peeps. Put them on top along with sprinkles for a festive Easter look.

    Our last day of work before Spring Break, so I made these last night to bring this morning.....all gone! I did manage to get one though. We have one "reserved" coffee maker that we use for hot tea, which went perfectly with these tartlets.

    Tasty treat

    A tasty little treat to make for the holidays. I made it with just the lemon and no lime juice. Very nice but baked it 5 minutes more than the recipe said and let them sit over night in the fridge.

    Yummy, but fell apart

    TIFFANY JOE from FRISCO, TX

    These tartlets were delicious in flavor, but the cheesecake part didn't seem to solidify enough. The filling was too soft.
