These Mini Blood Orange Hazelnut Tarts by Mitra Shirmohammadi are such a healthy, delicious, and refreshing dessert idea. If you aren’t lucky enough to find blood oranges at your local grocery store this time of year, you can still make them using regular oranges. They will be just as delicious, but with a different, not-so-vibrant color. There’s no need for baking, which means much less pressure in the kitchen and no need for precise measurements. You also don’t need a food processor or blender, if using flour for the base. Just mix the crust ingredients in a bowl and press down at the bottom of mini tart shells. You have to try these Blood Orange Tarts!
