Tuesdays with Dorie
Around My French Table
This tart seemed well received by my fellow bakers and bloggers from the now completed French Fridays with Dorie. I joined the group year 3 of 4 so I missed most of the dessert recipes. With an extra Tuesday this month I embarked on completing one of my unfinished recipes.
Since I was making this tart for family and friends, I decided to complete most of the components the night before; the tart dough, the almond cream and orange segments. All this made for an easy assembly the day of, as Dorie suggest to eat it the same day. Of all the recommendations drying out the oranges over night seemed the best. The dry oranges stayed perfectly on top of the almond cream and did not sink or move while baking.
This tart won rave reviews from my guests. Restaurant worthy was one of the comments. I loved this and thought it was great. I highly recommend this dessert if you have not made it.
