FFWD Week # 20: Orange-Almond Tart
I was super excited to use my new tart pan for this week's recipe! I made half of the recipe and made half a tart. I didn't quite make the barrier of crust high enough so there was some unfortunate seepage and burning - but in the end it worked fine. The tart before baking: And after: I let my orange slices dry overnight, which I think was a good call. I tried a slice on the day I made the tart, but found the oranges a little bitter. The next day I tried it again and had no problem with the oranges. Hmmm... maybe my taste buds were off! I guess I'll see how it is on the third day tomorrow! I think I over baked it a a little, but all in all I am very happy with how it turned out! By the way... this is the 20th recipe from Around My French Table, and seeing as I only have skipped one recipe thus far, I've made 19 recipes from this book. That's amazing. I don't think I have made that many recipes out of any of my cookbooks!
