Nutritional Facts

1 slice with 2 tablespoons whipped cream and 1 tablespoon candied peel equals 498 calories, 33 g fat (20 g saturated fat), 111 mg cholesterol, 171 mg sodium, 49 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. For candied peel, score oranges with a sharp knife, cutting peel into four wedge-shaped sections. Loosen peel with a spoon and remove; save fruit for another use.
  2. Place peel in a small heavy saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain. Cool for 5 minutes. Carefully scrape off excess pulp from peel. Cut the peel into 1/4-in. strips.
  3. In another saucepan, combine sugar and water; cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add orange peel strips; boil gently for 10-12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer strips to wire racks; let stand for 3 hours or until dry. Roll strips in additional sugar if desired.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add egg yolk. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until a ball forms.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into a 13-in. circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 11-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 350°.
  6. In a small saucepan, melt chocolates and butter over medium heat. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and espresso powder. Whisk in eggs and chocolate mixture until blended. Add the liqueur, orange peel and salt; pour filling into prepared shell.
  7. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until center is just set and top appears dull. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. For ganache, place chocolates and espresso powder in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Pour over tart; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes or until set.
  9. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar and liqueur; beat until stiff peaks form. Serve with tart and candied peel. Yield: 16 servings.
