I am so sorry for being this late in posting. I was stuck at the Ped’s office with my son all morning. (bronchitis. bleh.)

    I have my orange-almond tart up, as well as some information about a special baking project I did for women with cancer.

    Here’s my link:

    Yay! Here’s mine:

    I loved this. Mine was a little messy to cut into (perhaps I was too impatient to let it cool all the way?), but the flavor was wonderful!

    I made this with Pears – lovely texture, flavors, & pastry!

    Here’s mine, along with an official recipe to make your own almond flour:

    I did pears for the second one! Either way, it’s wonderful!

    This dessert hit the spot for me, but not for my Valentine.

  6. Ronda Kisner February 11, 2011 at 12:12 PM #

    I had to skip this one, for sugar is way too abundant in my life at this time of year.

  7. Kat February 11, 2011 at 12:16 PM #

    Burned mine bad, but it was still tasty. LOVED the almond cream!!

  8. KY February 11, 2011 at 12:16 PM #

    Have to try this one again.

    “And every day when I’ve been good, I get an orange after food.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

    Loved, loved, loved this! I made tartlets, and added a few blood orange supremes for a burst of sweet color. And I found the cutest Eiffel Tower for background decor!

  10. ComeUndone February 11, 2011 at 12:18 PM #

    I made mine with blood oranges and turned up the citrus quotient threefold!

  11. cdcooks February 11, 2011 at 12:19 PM #

    It’s good to be back and baking French pastries! This was delicious; next time I’ll put more oranges in the filling and maybe bake it a little less, but other than that, it was a perfect dessert for a winter evening… and a great breakfast too.

    I didn’t make this week’s recipe, but I’m looking forward to reading about everyone else’s! Instead I wrote a tutorial for making Brown-Sugar Squash and Brussels Sprouts en Papillote.

  13. Jessica February 11, 2011 at 12:24 PM #

    I subbed hazelnuts for almonds and tangelos for oranges…cleaning out that fridge!

  14. Miss Kris Kitchen February 11, 2011 at 12:26 PM #

    This is one of my favorites so far! It is truly an impressive dessert.

  15. stetted February 11, 2011 at 12:27 PM #

    I used tangerines in mine. So delicious and quite easy!

  16. jenniferwalker319 February 11, 2011 at 12:30 PM #

    This is my first French Fridays with Dorie, and the tart was a great way to kick things off! The hardest part for me was trying not to eat too much in one sitting.

  17. cakeduchess February 11, 2011 at 12:32 PM #

    So far, my favorite recipe:) I loved this tart! Maybe the pâte sablée was my favorite part;)

  18. SisBoom February 11, 2011 at 12:33 PM #

    This tart reminded me of my ex boyfriend. Both are a bit fussy and take forever to get ready.

  19. Bakeawaywithme February 11, 2011 at 12:39 PM #

    Loved this! It moves to number one on my “go to” list!

  20. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite February 11, 2011 at 12:48 PM #

    I made TWO!

  21. SugarPlumFairy February 11, 2011 at 12:55 PM #

  22. Lola's Kitchen February 11, 2011 at 1:04 PM #

    One of our favorite french friday recipes.

  23. popsiclesandsandyfeet February 11, 2011 at 1:14 PM #

    I hope your son feels better soon. I ate the last of the tart for breakfast today.

  24. SLongcoat February 11, 2011 at 1:14 PM #

    Don’t laugh, mine is kind of wonky looking. :(

  25. lindseymilam February 11, 2011 at 1:15 PM #

    delicious! i want to try it with plums next time!

  26. ryanbakes February 11, 2011 at 1:21 PM #

    This was a great way to begin my first foray into French Friday’s with Dorie! I loved this recipe. Can’t wait to make this again.

  27. Karla February 11, 2011 at 2:09 PM #

    Totally yum!

  28. lizzy February 11, 2011 at 2:12 PM #

    I made mine with pears, too…one of my favorite recipe so far:

  29. luciacara February 11, 2011 at 2:18 PM #

    Great recipe!

  30. NummyKitchen February 11, 2011 at 2:18 PM #

    Baked in a heart tart pan, and with triple sec instead of rum.

  31. Katrina February 11, 2011 at 2:36 PM #

    Delicious. Almost too delicious.

  32. Lexi February 11, 2011 at 3:09 PM #

    Extra special French Friday because I got to meet Dorie Greenspan on my lunch break!

  33. RedsKitchenDiaries February 11, 2011 at 3:37 PM #

    Super-fab desert! had a few issues with the crust, though … (going by the P&Q, it sounds like I wasn’t the only one)

  34. chefpandita February 11, 2011 at 3:45 PM #

    I hope your son feels better soon :)

  35. sanya living February 11, 2011 at 3:58 PM #

    Made mine with hazelnuts!

  36. Allison February 11, 2011 at 4:18 PM #

    Orange-Almond Tart! Oh how I love French Fridays!

  37. Lindsey February 11, 2011 at 4:26 PM #

    juicy, buttery, creamy goodness

  40. Guileless Gourmande February 11, 2011 at 7:13 PM #

    No time to write but here’s a link to my picture.

  41. creolekid February 11, 2011 at 7:51 PM #

    My word but that’s delicious!

  42. candygirl February 11, 2011 at 8:32 PM #

    I used pears and had a few mishaps along the way, but it was good!

  43. tricia February 11, 2011 at 8:52 PM #

    Amazing. Maybe our “favorite Friday” yet. Nana and I both LOVED it. Mmmmmm and gorgeous too.

  44. ldubois2 February 11, 2011 at 10:27 PM #

    Tasty….cheated with pre-made pie crust……mistake!

  45. Linda February 11, 2011 at 10:52 PM #

    Still yummy after 3 days! (refrigerated of course!)
    I loved the almond cream! Next time I’ll make it with pears.

  46. onewetfoot February 12, 2011 at 12:43 AM #

    My gluten-free version didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped, but it just means a little more experimentation in the kitchen is needed!

  47. sugarwithsalt February 12, 2011 at 2:10 AM #

    Another highly involved recipe that took up most of my day, but it turned out to be the prettiest thing I’ve made in a while.

  48. Bonnie Deahl February 12, 2011 at 8:35 AM #

    Wow, I have ordered my book and it is on back order…i guess that is a good thing. I can’t wait to make this. There will be a lot of back cooking for me to catch up on very soon! (I made Dorie’s chicken in a pot on the cover about a month ago and it was a HUGE hit.

    We loved this Orange-Almond tart and are already planning some variations with cherries, apricots..who knows! The only trouble we had was finding the almond flour called for in the recipe. We ended up grinding whole almonds in the food processor until they were flour-like (but not almond-butter). That worked out just fine. The pate sucre crust was wonderfully easy – we’ll be using that for some of our other favorite tarts too!

  50. kudoskitchen February 12, 2011 at 9:22 AM #

    I know I posted mine here yesterday, but call me crazy, I can’t find it here. Oh well, here’s to posting it again. Better late than never. This was yummy!

  51. maryeats February 12, 2011 at 11:00 AM #

    Orange Almond Tart meets Judy Blume. We must! We must! We must improve our crusts!

  52. stephsbitebybite February 12, 2011 at 2:15 PM #

    This tart is to die for!!

  53. Zwetschgen February 12, 2011 at 3:05 PM #

    My dad surprised me with blood oranges, so that’s what I used. So pretty and so delicious!

  54. barefootkitchenwitch February 12, 2011 at 3:58 PM #

    Here’s mine –

    Sorry it’s late!

  55. Jacquelyn February 12, 2011 at 4:29 PM #

    this is how it went this week

  56. Lana February 13, 2011 at 12:16 PM #

    Better late, than never, I say. I had a great experience baking the tart. I used walnuts instead of almonds (allergies) and blood oranges. Very enjoyable.

  57. Susan February 14, 2011 at 10:29 AM #

    Sweet and delicious! I usually make a pate brisee tart crust with almond cream/pears. This was a nice change. The oranges were great! Loved the sweet delicate crust. Everyone loved it!

  58. napangel February 21, 2011 at 10:48 AM #

    I love (love!) this tart!

  59. Gloria February 22, 2011 at 2:06 PM #

    A little late! Love the tart filling and looking forward to trying it with other fruits.

  60. gaaarp February 22, 2011 at 5:25 PM #

    I baked it on time, but was really late with my blog post:

  61. Waverly @ February 28, 2011 at 10:27 PM #

    All of February is posted together. The tart is one of my favorite recipes so far. Next time, I am going to try it with pears.
