If you're looking to add something more to this recipe, you could... ...sprinkle chopped candied orange peel or ginger evenly over the par-baked crust before adding the filling. Pour the filling directly over it, then bake; ...saute the butter or olive oil with fresh rosemary and strain before adding it to the crust. This will impart a soft herby flavor which accents the tangerine well. Just make sure you thoroughly chill the dough before baking; ...add 1/4-1/2 tsp ground (dried) ginger to the filling batter; or ...replace a portion of the tangerine with grapefruit ...replace some or all of the butter/vegan butter in the crust with olive oil for some more depth of flavor. If you don't have a rectangular fluted tart pan, you can use an 8" square baking dish instead. No matter what shape your bars turn out, they still taste fantastic.
