ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Double Citrus Tart

Here is the first Dessert Club winner! I didn't take nice photos of all the desserts before they were dug into, but it's the last one on the left here:

A creamy lemony-orangey, bright-and-happy filling in an out-of-this-world gingersnap crust. I am not surprised it won. Everything on the counter was fabulous, but among all the sweetness, this sweet-tart tart was in a class all its own.

Double Citrus Tart
1 1/2 cup crushed gingersnap cookies
5 T butter, melted
2 T brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 large eggs, separated
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 T sugar
Garnish: fresh mint leaves, lemon/orange slices

1. Preheat oven to 325. Stir together first four ingredients. Press mixture evenly into a 9-inch round tart pan; set aside.

2. Whisk together sweetened condensed milk, orange juice concentrate, lemon juice and egg yolks until blended.

3. Beat egg whites at medium speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold into condensed milk mixture. Pour into prepared crust.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or just until filling is set. Remove to a wire rack and let cool completely. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Remove sides of pan from bottom and place on a serving dish.

5. Beat whipping cream and sugar at medium speed until stiff peaks form. Dollop around edges of tart; garnish, if desired.
