Caraway Blood Orange Tart

This Caraway Blood Orange Tart is easy but yields impressive results. Indulge yourself with this gorgeous dessert of caramelized oranges nestled in a flaky, buttery caraway pastry. The hint of spice from caraway seeds pairs beautifully with end-of-season blood oranges. The best part? No matter how this tart looks, it will taste delicious. It is the imperfectly perfect dessert you can’t mess up.  

Make the pastry dough. You can mix everything in one bowl. Start with the dry ingredients plus finely ground caraway seeds. Next, use your fingertips to rub the cold butter and lard into the dry ingredients until coarse crumbs form. Finally, add the vinegar and iced water and bring the dough together. Chill the dough until firm. Meanwhile, peel and slice the oranges. Be sure to remove all the white pith beneath the skin of the oranges, as it tastes bitter. Toss the oranges with sugar. To assemble the tart, roll out the pastry dough on a sheet of non-stick parchment paper. Sprinkle the almond meal over the pastry dough and top with the orange slices. Fold the edges over the oranges and brush the pastry with egg wash. Bake until golden brown. Slice and enjoy!
