Pies and tarts are probably my very favorite thing to bake. They’re so easy to make, to transport and share with family and friends. Most importantly the pie possibilities are endless! Buttermilk is one of my very favorite ingredients. I love the flavor it imparts on whatever it’s poured into. Pie is no exception. Buttermilk pie is a classic and this lemon lime buttermilk tart adds a citrus spin to this classic treat. A cookie crust keeps all that smooth, creamy, citrusy filling together.

I’ve made buttermilk pie before but stumbled across a lime buttermilk tart while perusing my Secret Recipe Club assigned blog for the month, Why I Am Not Skinny. Isn’t that a great name for a blog?? As always I found myself drawn to so much deliciousness like this raspberry lemon curd meringue tart and banana chocolate french toast. Yum! Ultimately once I landed on the lime buttermilk tart, I knew that’s what I would make.

I’ve been on a huge citrus kick lately so I decided to really kick up the citrus a notch by adding both lemon and lime to my buttermilk tart. I made a crust from Biscoff cookies. Really, what’s not to love about what’s going on here? I could hardly wait for the tart to cool before diving in. It was a long hard wait but well worth it. This tart is smooth and creamy with a bright blast of citrus, perfect after a summer meal!

Me too, love making pies and tarts. Love this tart, buttermilk and lime sound like such a lovely combination. I have never tasted biscoff cookies or the creamy stuff in the jar. I have never seen them in the store around here. The crust looks fantastic.

I love this because I make buttermilk pie all the time, but never with lemon and lime. And your crust is divine.

A biscoff cookie crust? Yes, please!
In fact, I have a few lonely Meyer lemons and a half-used carton of buttermilk sitting in the fridge that have this recipe written all over them. You are an evil genius, Kate. But in the best possible way, of course. 🙂
