Knead lightly and chill. Roll pastry between baking paper to fit a 25cm flan tin. Prick the base well with a fork then blind bake at 200°C for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool.
  2. BEAT PHILLY and sugar until smooth, beat in the eggs then fold through the rind, juice and cream. Pour into the prepared base.
  3. BAKE in a moderate oven 180°C for 20-30 minutes or until filling is set. Cool to room temperature.

  2. REMOVE limes from syrup and arrange on tart.
