Blood Orange Tart

My coworker brought me a huge bag of blood oranges from her tree the other day and it made me giddy! I love blood oranges! For the most part, blood oranges are tart, juicy and so pretty! Full of great colors - orange, magenta and pink. I've made a couple dishes with them, one being this gorgeous tart. I served it with fat free frozen yogurt and just loved it.  

Blood Orange Tart

The Stuff:
4 blood oranges, segment and peel the white pith, reserve the juice 
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon butter, cut up into pieces
5 sheets puff pastry, thawed
1 egg white

The How To:
  • Spray non-stick cooking spray on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with a little flour, lay the pastry sheets (all five stacked on top of each other) on the cookie sheet
  • Place orange segments in a pile about 6 inches wide
  • Place butter on top of orange pile
  • Fold pastry on top to make a smaller square
  • Here it is completed, but you can see what the edges look like
  • Top with brown sugar nad reserved blood orange juice (about 1/4 cup)
  • Brush egg white on edges of pastry
  • Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden
