Blood Orange Tart Recipe

Looking for a blood orange tart recipe? Look no further as this is the perfect dessert recipe to end an awesome family lunch or dinner. A zesty and sweet-tart recipe that compliments a summer grill party.

You can use a few different kinds of fats for the pie crust— such as butter, lard, or shortening. But, the taste of the butter is much better than any other type of fat. To make a perfect and flaky crust, make sure that your butter is cold and your water is ice water.

As for the Swiss meringue, do not separate the egg whites directly into your mixing bowl. You need to make sure that you don't get even the slightest amount of yolk on your egg whites. Yolks and water are the most common enemy of a great Swiss meringue. It will prevent aeration and will ruin the whole batch of whites.

Filling:
5 large egg yolks
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup blood orange juice
2 tablespoons butter
1 zest of lemon
Meringue:
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
5 large egg whites
Crust:
2 cup AP flour
¼ tsp salt
½ cup frozen butter
1/2 cup cold water
8
  1. For the crust: Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Dice cold butter into a ½ inch cubes.
  3. Mix butter into dry ingredients until you have small clumps.
  4. Roll out the crust to fit...
