Recipe: Honey–Citrus Tart

Recipe for Honey–Citrus Tart, adapted by the James Beard Foundation

This ricotta and honey–based tart from Baltimore-based pastry chef Angie Lee is a lovely way to put whatever citrus you have on hand to use. (Lee favors Cara Cara or blood oranges.) The tart dough is made with all-purpose flour and ground amaranth, one of several "alternative" grains that's really not so alternative these days. It lends a nutty flavor to the baked crust, making this dessert all the more special.
