Expert Tips

Use leftover ingredients and impress your guests! Press leftover orange marmalade through a sieve into a resealable plastic bag. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag, and squeeze marmalade in a zigzag pattern onto serving plates. Place tart slices on decorated plates.

Want a sweet finish? Beat 1 cup whipping cream, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 teaspoon grated orange peel in a chilled small bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Garnish each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a curled strip of orange peel.
