1/2 c Powdered sugar
1/4 ts Salt
1/2 c Unsalted butter; (plus 3
-tablespoons), chilled cut
-into 1/2 inch pieces
1 lg Egg; beaten to blend
2 ts Ice water; (about)

4 lg Eggs
1 c Sugar
1/2 c Orange juice
2 tb Fresh lemon juice
2 ts Orange peel; grated
1/4 c Whipping cream
2 tb Powdered sugar

16 oz Frozen unsweetened

6 tb Sugar

For Crust: Mix flour, powdered sugar and salt in processor. Add butter and
cut in using on/off turns until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in
beaten egg. Mix in enough ice water by teaspoonfuls to form moist clumps.
Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate at
least 30 minutes. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled. Soften slightly
at room temperature before rolling out.)

Roll out dough on floured surface to 14-inch round. Roll up dough on
rolling pin; transfer to 11 inch diameter tart pan with removable bottom.
Trim dough to 1 inch overhang. Fold in overhang to form double-thick sides
extending 1/4 inch above sides of pan, pressing to adhere. Pierce crust
with fork in several places. Freeze crust 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375F. Bake crust until set and light golden, piercing with
fork if crust bubbles, about 18 minutes. Cool completely.

For Filling: Blend eggs and next 4 ingredients in processor. Add cream and
blend until smooth. Pour into cooled crust. Bake tart until filling is set,
about 25 minutes. Cool. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Preheat broiler. To make foil cover to protect crust edges during broiling,
cut out 12-inch round of foil. Cut out center of foil, leaving 2-inch-wide
circle. Place foil circle atop tart, covering crust edges. Dust center of
tart with powdered sugar. Broil tart until sugar melts and is golden,
watching closely and rotating tart for even broiling, about 1 minute.

Transfer pan to rack. Remove foil circle. Cool tart at least 30 minutes.
Remove pan sides. Serve tart slightly warm or at room temperature with
Blackberry Puree.

For Puree: Puree berries and sugar in processor. Strain through fine sieve;
discard seeds. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; chill.)
