More About This Recipe
  • You may be wondering what the difference between a pie and a tart is. The two dishes are actually closely related. They both use pastry crust and can both be filled with either sweet or savory ingredients. However, there are a few key points of differentiation to note. Tarts only have a bottom crust—the top is always open and the sides of a tart pan are shallower than that of your typical 9-inch pie plate with sloped sides. Tart crusts tend to be made from some sort of pastry dough that is a bit firmer than flaky pie crust dough, but can also be made from other ingredients like crushed Oreo™ cookies or graham crackers, much like their pie cousins. Tart pans often have a removable bottom and a rather sturdy mold, giving your crust an impressive-looking presentation (without any of the work that comes with decorating a traditional pie crust!). One of the best things about tarts, like our Thin French Apple Tart is that the open top gives them an impressive, sophisticated look, with less effort than it takes to make traditional apple pie! This fall, try this recipe and more easy tarts like Pear-Cranberry Tart and Decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Tart!
