Grapefruit tarts are absolutely delicious! With that recipe, you can make one big tart or divide it into smaller tartlets. They taste heavenly and exotic.

I t's finally the weekend! I must tell you guys, it's still hard for me to get used to getting up so early... That's why I decided that I'll spend my weekend treating myself with the longer sleep, and some yummy treats :)

If you like grapefruits, this tart is definitely for you, super refreshing, zesty and not too sweet. If you have some grapefruit curd left, use it on your pancakes!

Grapefruit curd
  1. In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, combine the sugar with the cornstarch and add in the juice. Cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly. Gradually whisk in half of the hot mixture into the egg yolks to temper the eggs. Return the egg mixture to the saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add in the butter pieces. Whisk until melted. Stir in food coloring.
  2. Chill to the room temp before using on the crust.
