The other night we were in the mood for something sweet to munch on and quick to make, so I decided to bake a batch of my gluten free gingerbread cookies and by the time we had finished dinner, they were out of the oven, filling the house with their conmforting, spicy scent.
After dinner we had some sort of sugar rush, so we also grabbed a jar of jam and spread some on our gingerbreads (don’t judge … please ) and while munching on a cookie, in a very focused and absorbed way (so much so that I thought: looks like I baked cookies for meditation .. ) my sweetheart asks: could you bake a jam tart, using this same cookie dough?
I think about it for a sec. Well of course I could! And what’s the best jam to go with a spicy pie crust? Orange: it’s what comes to mind immediately.
I slightly modified the recipe for the cookies, but this gluten free, vegan gingerbread orange tart is just as easy and quick to bake!
You will want to share it with friends and family, chit chatting while sipping a hot cup of tea 😉
Let me know if you try it and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @sweetsensitivefree to show me your creations!
