You'd be surprised what you could learn if you'd just open your mind.
Oranges aren't just for juice or breakfast.

In other don't have a single thing to contribute

Flaky Blood Orange Tart

desserts, fruits, pastry

1 cup all-purpose flour; more for dusting
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
ounce butter; 1/2 inch cube
3 tablespoons ice water
8 blood oranges; five oz each
1 large egg yolk; mixed w/
2 tablespoon water

This basic, rustic crostata approach — thinly sliced fruit, some
some butter and a flaky dough — is something you can use with any
any time you want a quick and pretty dessert. (We’ve used this
with the Simplest Apple Tart.) But really, it’s the perfect way to use
blood oranges; nothing will better show off their pretty hues.

1. In a food processor, pulse the 1 cup of flour with 2 tablespoons of
sugar and the baking powder and salt. Add the stick of cold butter and
pulse several times, just until it is the size of peas. Sprinkle the
with the ice water and pulse just until moistened crumbs form. Turn
crumbs out onto a work surface, knead once or twice and pat the pastry
a disk. Wrap the pastry in plastic and chill for 30 minutes.

2. On a floured work surface, roll out the pastry to an 11-inch round,
about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer the pastry to a parchment paper–lined
cookie sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes, or until chilled.

3. Meanwhile, peel the blood oranges, removing all of the bitter white
pith. Thinly slice 2 of the oranges crosswise; remove the pits.
the orange slices to a plate. Working over a sieve set over a bowl,
cut in
between the membranes of the remaining oranges, releasing the sections
the sieve. Remove the pits and gently shake out as much juice as
without mashing the sections; you will need 1 cup of sections. Reserve
orange juice for another use.

4. Arrange the orange sections on the pastry, leaving a 2-inch border
around. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the sugar over the oranges. Using a
paring knife, thinly slice the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter over
oranges. Fold up the pastry over the oranges, leaving most of the
uncovered. Brush the pastry with the egg wash and sprinkle lightly
with 1
tablespoon of the sugar. Arrange the orange slices on top, leaving a
border of pastry all around. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of
on top. Freeze the tart until solid, at least 4 hours or preferably

5. Preheat the oven to 375° and position a rack in the center. Place a
baking sheet on the rack below to catch any drips. Bake the tart
from the freezer for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the fruit is
bubbling and
the pastry is deeply browned. Transfer the cookie sheet to a rack and
the tart cool for 30 minutes. Carefully slide the parchment paper onto
rack and let the tart cool completely. Serve with the Deep Dark Salted
Butter Caramel Sauce (below).
