1 large egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
16 ounces fresh strawberries, cut in half
1/2 cup orange marmalade

Directions: Preheat oven to 425. Place first 6 ingredients in a food processor for 20 seconds or until it resembles coarse sand. Transfer to a large bowl. Whisk together egg and buttermilk; add to flour mixture, mixing by hand until dough forms. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3 to 4 times. Press dough into a a lightly greased tart pan, pressing it up the sides. Bake at 425 for 20-22 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch.
