Steps

Marbled Citrus Tart

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, blend together all dough ingredients until they form a crumbly dough. Press dough evenly into a lightly greased 9-inch tart pan. Score bottom of tart with a fork. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  3. Marble the tart: Pour blood orange curd in large dollops around the tart, followed by the lemon and grapefruit curd until tart is full. Drag a toothpick or skewer through the curds to create a marbled pastel pattern. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
