The Ultimate Book for Making Pies and Tarts at Home (Paperback)
Most tarts these days are on the sweet side, such as lemon meringue tarts and Portuguese egg tarts. However, some types of savory tarts like the quiche are also commonly found in bakeries and cafes.
- A tart is generally made by making each component separately and then assembled after.
The first step is usually to create the crust. This crust is then filled with your choice of filling, with some fillings being baked together with the crust or simply left to chill.
