  1. Put the condensed milk in a bowl and mix with the zest and juice of the 3½ limes.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until it's just beginning to form soft peaks. Fold in the milk and lime mixture with a metal spoon or spatula until just combined.
  3. Carefully divide between the pastry tartlets and top with the zest of ½ a lime and 1 crushed meringue nest.

Tip: If your limes are too hard to squeeze, roll them firmly on the work surface to help release the juice.
