  1. Combine cream cheese and granulated sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade; process until mixture is smooth. Add lime zest and juice; pulse several times to combine. Transfer filling to prepared crust; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until it is set, at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on a small plate. Dredge each lime in the sugar, turning to coat both sides. Transfer slices to prepared baking sheet. Bake until slices are just stiff but not brown, about 40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3. To serve, arrange lime slices around tart, or make a slit halfway through each slice, and tuck into slices.
