The Freshman Cook: Orange Creamsicle Mini Tarts

It’s reveal day for Club Baked !! This time around we made the Orange Creamsicle Tart from the book we are baking from; Baked Explorations, written by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. I just love this tart. I think this is only the second time I have made a tart, the first time being many moons ago! I decided to go with mini tarts because I didn’t have a tart pan, and when I went to buy one, the mini pans were just sitting there, begging me to take them home!! They are just so cute!!  Besides, the smaller size is more practical for me, and I hope to make them again. This recipe was not difficult, but it was time consuming. Definitely not something you can just whip together. It takes a lot of time for the filling to set up, and chill, and then chill again. Very hands on. The dough has to chill, bake, bake again, and cool. Not hard, but not the treat to make when you don ‘t have a lot of time. But when you do have some time, it is definitely worth the effort!
