This tart is my new favorite recipe from Around My French Table, Dorie Greenspan‘s newest book. (If you’re new to this site, I’m cooking my way through AMFT with a group of cooks over at French Fridays With Dorie.)
I had never made a tart with almond pastry cream. And you know what? It is the real star of this tart.
As a matter of fact, if you made this tart with only the pastry cream and no oranges, no one would complain.
But the oranges are beautiful and add a wonderful, subtle bitterness after they’ve been baked.
Yes, this is my new favorite.
