An Inviting Orange Tart That Is Difficult To Refuse

An Inviting Orange Tart That Is Difficult To Refuse

I found this orange tart irresistible. I just kept eating one small piece after another. The taste of the fresh orange slice with its peel really captured me.

It is a pretty simple recipe to prepare. Just prepare the dough and let it rest for 1 hour. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper, wash carefully an orange (better if bio) and cut it in thin slices. Sprinkle the parchment paper with some sugar, place the orange slices and a few butter pieces. Spread the dough and cover the oranges with it and bake! <!–more–>

It is a kind of tarte tartin, the famous French upside-down tart, that has the topping baked downside.

I like very much tarts and sweets prepared with fruits. I believe they are fresher and balances the sweet of sugar in a recipe.

I admit that I like this tart also for how it looks, with little effort. The orange slices add such an inviting appearance and makes it looks like a patisserie specialty.
