Orange, Lemon and Cardamom (cardamon) Tart

Orange, Lemon and Cardamom (cardamon) Tart created by Chandra M

A nice, tangy citrus tart. I love these with a large dollop of thick, thick cream. Prep time includes blind baking the pastry, or you could purchase a ready made one.

    This was right up my alley! Tangy, refreshing, & a hint of cardamom. I could not find shortcrust pastry at my local store, so I made my own (1st time, so the crust is a little thick due to my own inexperience). I used whole wheat pastry flour, so the cardamom complemented that very nicely. The directions did not state when to add the cornflour & cardamom, so I added it to the butter after the butter was melted, then gradually stirred in the egg mixture, and brought just to a boil.
