Winter Citrus Tart
This Winter Citrus Tart encompasses the flavors of winter with grapefruit and blood oranges!
Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a great weekend. It’s a three day weekend for some of us and I intend to enjoy this extra day to it’s fullest. Looking at my work calendar, I realized this is the last holiday until Memorial Day in May which is sooooo far away!! I’m definitely going to freeze and hopefully thaw by then.
Winters in Upstate NY are no fun. I don’t care how jolly you are about snow or it’s pureness, I dare you to live in Upstate NY for just one winter and then tell me about this jolly snow you speak of. And when I mean live, I mean actually leave the house daily. It’s beyond miserable but that’s why I focus on the good. The fresh juicy winter fruits, the cute boots, the abundance of comfort foods, and the nightly fires. A girl gotta survive, right?
I found myself with a little too many grapefruits and blood oranges the other day and decided to use up the freshly squeezed juices to make this winter citrus tart that is reminiscent of spring and all the sunshine it brings. I am so glad I did because it did brighten up our days for a little while.
Starting with a brown butter shortbread crust, this winter citrus tart is bursting with sweet blood orange and tart grapefruit juices. Oh, so tart and citrus-y. It is very similar to lemon bars but with a sweet undertone from the blood oranges and grapefruits.
I really think you will enjoy this tart as you bundle up in your sweaters and cozy blankets.
