Cooking Methods


Make Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 175C. Coat a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the crumbled graham crackers in a food processor and process until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the spread and egg white. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan.

  3. Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned (small cracks might appear). Cool completely on a wire rack.

    Make Filling
  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine the orange juice, egg, sugar, cornstarch and salt. Whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly for about 6 minutes, or until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the orange zest. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Cool to room temperature.

  3. Spoon into the prepared crust, cover, and refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

    Make Topping
  1. Cut a thin slice from the top and bottom of each of the oranges, exposing the fresh. Stand each orange upright, and using a sharp knife, thickly cut off the peel, following the contour of the fruit and removing all the white pith and membrane. Holding the orange over a bowl, carefully cut along both sides of each section to free it from the membrane. Discard any seeds and let the sections fall into the bowl.
  2. Place the orange sections in a single layer on several paper towels. Gently blot with additional paper towels. Before serving, arrange the orange sections on the tart.
