Blood Orange Tart with Gluten-Free Crust

1

The texture for this tart is really creamy. It’s a very smooth filling, but not quite the same smoothness as pumpkin pie. I really liked it, especially paired with the crispy, thick crust. My roommate said I should sell this tart. Heck, maybe one day I will. In the meantime, my baked goods will continue to be provided to friends, family, and classmates for free =P

8
- For the filling:
- 1/8 cup cornstarch
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 2 egg yolks, beaten
- zest of 3 blood oranges
- Juice of 3 blood oranges (about 1 1/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into 1/2" chunks
To make the crust, use a pastry knife or blitz in a food processor all the crust ingredients until the butter bits are about pea-sized. Press the mixture into a lightly greased tart pan. Use a fork to pierce holes in the bottom to prevent any bubbles. If you have pie weights, use em, but if you don't, it's not the end of the world. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes or until the middle and the edges start to brown. Remove from oven and let cool while you prepare the filling. In a bowl, whisk sugar, salt, zest, and cornstarch until incorporated. In a heat-safe metal bowl, whisk the eggs and yolk until they're kind of foamy. Add the blood orange juice and the sugar mixture to the egg mixture and mix together until incorporated. Place the mixing bowl over a gently simmering pot of water, and slowly stir until the mixture thickens and is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. This may take around 10-15 minutes. Once the curd is kind of a pudding-like consistency, remove from heat and strain with a fine mesh sieve, then mix in the cold, unsalted butter. Stir the butter in and let the custard set for about 5 minutes. Pour the custard into the baked crust and then bake for another 15 minutes until the custard is set. Let cool on a wire rack, and once completely cool, cover and refrigerate overnight prior to serving.
