We think fruit tarts are a great spring snack to satisfy your sweet tooth, but they're also pretty good for summer, too. Whether you're making the fanciest recipe with a tart pan, whipping up mini-tarts/tartlets, or trying to use up your fresh fruit, whipped cream, and ice cream in a dessert, here are a few fruit tart recipes you should consider making.
1. Easy Fruit Tart
This fruit tart recipe from Delish has a simple list of tart crust ingredients including all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, salt, melted butter, and almond extract. You could always just buy a shortbread crust or tart shell, but what's the fun in that? Make sure to bake your crust until golden brown.
2. Fresh Fruit Tart With Vanilla Mascarpone Cream
Even the name for this fresh fruit tart recipe sounds good! Break out your heavy cream, large eggs, confectioners' sugar, and more for the flaky pastry crust. Don't forget the mascarpone, vanilla bean seeds, and a few other ingredients for the delicious cream. If you only have powdered sugar, don't worry. It's the same as confectioners' sugar.
3. Lemon Tart With Fresh Berries
Who doesn't love fresh berries in their tarts? This recipe calls for lemon zest or lemon juice, an egg yolk, fresh berries, brown sugar for a glaze, and just a few other ingredients. If you're lazy, you can even fold it into a galette for faster prep time.
4. Vegan Forest Fruits Chocolate Tart
Why not make a chocolate tart vegan? The crust for this recipe features cacao powder, almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and sea salt, and the chocolate ganache tart filling has chilled chocolate milk and dark chocolate. Yum. The fruits include frozen cherries, fresh raspberries, and blackberries.
5. Rustic French Apple Tart
How do you like them apples? If you're an apple pie fan, you'll love this tart. This tart recipe promises a buttery pie crust and includes at least 3 large apples, turbinado sugar, and apricot jelly or jam for a glaze.
6. Cream Cheese Tart
This fruit tart comes from the King Arthur Baking company! It suggests adding sliced kiwi fruit and blueberries for a topping.
7. Gluten-Free Fruit Tart With Lemon Curd
If you need a gluten-free tart recipe rather than a vegan one, look no further than this recipe. It uses gluten-free flour and has mandarin oranges as a suggested topping.
8. Rhubarb Strawberry Tart
We usually think of rhubarb for pie, but why not use it for a crispy tart instead? See this recipe.
9. Summer Fruit Cream Tart
This is actually a no-bake recipe that uses Oreo cookies in the crust and mango, coconut sugar, and non-dairy cream cheese in the fruit mousse.
10. Candied-Orange Chocolate-Caramel Tart
OK, so this one is more of a chocolate tart than a fruit tart, but it has orange and orange zest!
