On the seventh of December, my grandmother had an anniversary - she turned 95 years old!* Among the treats was this citrus tart. It is based on a lean shortbread dough with a filling of winter fruits-orange, Mandarin and grapefruit, supplemented with zest and cinnamon. The cake is suitable for everyone who observes the Christmas fast, and not only. Try
Prepare the dough. In water, dissolve the sugar and salt, add vegetable oil. Add about half of the flour with baking powder, vanilla and lemon and orange zest, and mix.
Add the remaining flour and knead the dough, then leave for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, prepare the filling. Peel the fruit, disassemble it into slices and check for light, if there are bones - remove, then place it in the bowl of a food processor with a "chopping knife" attachment.
Grind for 15 seconds. Add sugar mixed with starch.
Turn on the harvester for another 15 seconds. The filling is ready.
Roll out the rested dough with a thickness of about 2-3 mm, cut a circle 5-6 cm larger than the diameter of Your form.
Put the dough to the form, you should get the sides.
From the remains of the dough, cut small figures (on the occasion I have hearts, but there can be stars, and leaves, whatever). From parts of figures posting figure or composition on new year's theme. For example, a Christmas tree made of stars, or the number "31". I have, of course, 95)) Bake the figure and cut cookies at 190*C for about 10-12 minutes.
Then put the filling on the dough in the form, bake at 190*With 25-30 minutes, until the edges do not seize (the filling was too thin for laying out cookies immediately).
The edges are gripped-decorate the cake with cookies in a circle, slightly press, bake for another 7-10 minutes until the middle is gripped.
Place the prepared composition in the center and press it slightly. Bake for another 5 minutes until ready.
Cool the finished cake. Sprinkle with powdered sugar in the center, cinnamon around the edges, and serve.
