FFWD: Orange Almond Tart
from around my french table by Dorie Greenspan
The picture for this recipe is what got me. Who doesn’t love a beautifully composed tart with swirls of fruit and a golden buttery crust? Unfortunately, my almond cream swallowed up my oranges, so you’re getting a somewhat abbreviated view:
I thought it would be pretty to use blood oranges as well, and I’m really glad I did. I love the way the colors pop against the pale almond cream… next time I’m definitely going to space the oranges better and aim for bigger supremes. I used almond meal from Trader Joe’s instead of the requisite almond flour, so my cream is a bit rustic looking.
Overall, this recipe wasn’t too difficult, just time consuming. It was much easier to pull together with the crust already baked, and making the orange supremes didn’t take long at all. Do not skip the drying step!
