I don’t imagine that Mum ever made these as the spicy red curry paste wasn’t something she or Dad would have liked, but for those who don’t feel that way this recipe sounds like a great way to jazz up the humble rissole.
Limes are now a common thing in Australia to cook with and to add to drinks, but in Mum’s day lime juice was only something 19th century British sailors had drunk and Limeys was a derogatory name for those sailors. This Key Lime Pie recipe comes from a Pie Delight segment in the New Idea, can’t find a date on it, but I’m guessing around the early 2000s.
Little tarts like these always remind me of the afternoon tea parties Mum used to have with her friends. I’m not sure she made these particular tarts, but the sight of the pastry, filling and cream somehow brings back memories of getting home from school and being allowed to eat the leftovers…………..ahhhhhhhhhhh………..delicious memories.
