Calories : 347


  • 5 1/3 ounces pure butter shortbread

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups grapefruit juice, fresh

  • 4 egg yolks

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 2 teaspoons grated grapefruit zest

  • 3 red grapefruits, peeled and sectioned

  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • Process shortbread in a blender or food processor until graham cracker crumb consistency (about 1 1/3 cup crumbs).

  • Stir together shortbread crumbs, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons melted butter in a small bowl. Press mixture lightly into a greased 9-inch tart pan.

  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside.

  • Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Whisk in juice and egg yolds. Cook over medium-high heat, whisking constantly, 10-12 minutes or until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat; stir in 3 tablespoons butter and rind.

  • Pour filling into prepared tart shell. Cover surface of filling directly with plastic wrap. Chill 2 1/2 hours.

  • Place red grapefruit sections in an 8-inch baking disk. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar, and chill until ready to assemble. Drain grapefruit before assembly.

  • Arrange segments, with outer part of segments facing the edge, around border of tart. Arrange remaining segments around tart, slightly overlapping to cover filling completely. Serve immediately. Chill leftovers.

  • To make ahead: Prepare crust and filling up to 2 days ahead, but do not top with fruit. Top with grapefruit just before serving.
