Lime and Buttermilk Tart

As already mentioned – Summer has finally arrived in Brussels AND we have moved into our wonderful new home that has a little terrace!

So we celebrated the new move with a housewarming braai/BBQ for our friends (and neighbours)… and with 25 or so people swarming around our lounge and outdoor area… I knew that one dessert just wouldnt be enough (I had made the 3milk cake as well) and funny enough – this recipe also comes from one of the Olive Magazines ( September 2012 issue).

It was surprisingly easy to make – quite tasty – and what can be termed *simple but stylish*

I adapted the recipe by making a biscuit base (aka cheesecake style) instead of using shortcrust pastry and I think that it made this tart more summery!!
