1Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
2With a stand mixer with the paddle attachement, beat the butter at low speed until it becomes soft, gradually add the confectioner's sugar until creamy.
3Add the ground almonds scraping the sides of the bowl to bring the dough to the center.
4Add the egg and the yolk, beat until well incorporated.
5In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt.
6Quickly add half of the flour mixture to the butter and sugar and keep beating until fully incorporated. Add the remaining flour.
7Turn the dough into a floured surface and knead, crushing it with your palm in 2 or 3 strikes.
8Make a ball and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
9Bring the dough to room temperature 15 minutes before rolling it on a lightly floured surface.
10Blind bake the tart shells without the filling, lining the tart tins turned upside down at 170 C for 15 to 20 minutes until golden.
11Let them cool on a wire rack.
12If the tarts are prepared in advance, brush a bit of melted white chocolate in the bottom of the tart shell.
13For the filling, pour the sugar, the whole eggs, the yolks and the juice in a medium saucepan.
14Mix and bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened.
15Once it starts boiling, add the butter all at once and mix quickly. Set aside.
16If there are chunks of cooked egg whites pass the curd through a sieeve to obtain a smooth result.
17Before it is completely cooled, place 2 tablespoons of filling in each chilled tart shell, and place in the refrigerator until set, before putting the ganache layer on top.

I am always trying new dessert recipes and must say that I was intrigued with mixing the flavors of orange and chocolate. I have never made a tartlet before and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. And the flavor was out of this world! Glad I tried this recipe and will for sure make it again soon.
