I have a question about the recipe "Tangerine and Almond Shortbread Tart" from lorigoldsby. Can this be made ahead? If cooled and kept in an airtight container? I want to make it for Christmas eve but we will be travelling all day.

Yes, it can definitely be made ahead! Cool it completely before you pack it up, though. If you like, you can warm it really gently in a low (250 degree) oven before serving to soften it a bit. But it's also delicious at room temp!
If you're going to make it more than a day or so ahead, I'd wrap it in two layers of plastic and freeze it!
Thank you for your quick response!
