Popular Tart Recipes -Pe...

A tart is a baked pastry dish with an open top that can be filled with anything you want. Some common types of pastries are apple tart, chocolate tart, fruit tart, lemon and blackberry marshmallow tart, and mini tart. Modern tarts often include a fruit-based filling, occasionally with custard, and the pastry is typically short crust. The filling can be either sweet or savory.

Grilled Fruit Phyllo Tart


  • 3 teaspoons of melted butter
  • Canola oil, 4 tablespoons
  • 8 phyllo dough sheets
  • One big lemon
  • Peeled and halved three medium-sized peaches
  • Strawberries, two cups
  • uncooked pineapple
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar in bags
  • 0.5 teaspoons of salt
  • heavy whipping cream, half a cup
  • one tub of cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly chopped mint
  • a third cup of sugar


Step #1

Set the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the butter and oil in a small bowl. Some of the butter mixes can be used to butter a baking pan. Brush the prepared pan with the butter mixture after placing one sheet of the phyllo dough there. Add 7 more phyllo sheets on top, brushing between each layer.

Step #2

5-7 minutes in the oven, or until golden brown.

Step #3

Grate the lemon zest finely. Combine peaches, strawberries, pineapple, brown sugar, salt, and lemon juice in a big bowl.

Step #4

Put the fruits on a grill rack that has been greased. Grill the fruit until it is tender while covered and at medium heat. Put them apart.

Step #5

The cream should be beaten in a small bowl. Cream cheese and sugar should be thoroughly blended in a separate basin. The whipping cream should be used to cover the phyllo crust. Decorate the fruit you just grilled. Sprinkle the mint and then slice them into pieces.

Prep time: 30 min. 

Grill time: 10 min.

Flat apple & vanilla tart

  • 5 big apples and 1 lemon’s juice
  • 30g of butter

Heat the oven. The pastry should be rolled out and cut into a 35 cm-wide circular. Transfer it to a baking sheet.

Frequently Asked Question

1. What is the difference between pie and tart?

Pies are deeper, with sloping sides, and can be sweet or savory, while tarts are shallow, with straight sides, and are usually sweet. Pies often have a top crust, while tarts typically do not. Additionally, pie crusts are typically flakier and sturdier, while tart crusts are more delicate and crumbly.

2. What are the tart baking tips?

Use cold ingredients: ensure that the butter, water, and any other liquids used in the tart dough are cold to prevent the pastry from becoming tough.

Chill the dough: refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes before rolling it out to make it easier to work with. Blind bake the crust: pre-bake the tart crust before adding any filling to prevent it from becoming soggy.

Choose the right filling: pick a filling that complements the delicate flavor and texture of the tart crust, and avoid fillings that are too heavy or sweet.

Bake at the correct temperature: To ensure that the tart cooks evenly and the filling sets properly, follow the recipe’s directions for baking temperature and time.

3. What is the golden rule of pastry making?

The golden rule of pastry making is to keep all ingredients and equipment as cold as possible, including the butter or fat used in the pastry dough, in order to achieve a flaky and tender texture.
