A tart is a baked dish consisting of a filling over a pastry base with an open top not covered with pastry. The pastry is usually shortcrust pastry; the filling may be sweet or savoury, though modern tarts are usually fruit-based, sometimes with custard. Tartlet refers to a miniature tart; an example would be egg tarts. The categories of "tart", "flan", "quiche", and "pie" overlap, with no sharp distinctions.

    Recipe Spiced pear and pistachio tart

    Pears poached in spiced red wine is a great classic recipe. I added a cheeky Scotch Bonnet chilli for a surprise kick. The pistachio ‘custard’ with rose water provides a creamy sweet aromatic contrast to the spice. Roll the pastry as thin as you dare for a super crisp result. Ingredients 5 -...

    Recipe Sardine and Red Pepper Tart

    This economical dish uses tinned sardines and makes a lovely light lunch. I char grilled the pepper myself but for a short-cut, use ready prepared from a jar. If at all possible use sardines in spring water (not oil). The oil is apt to soak into the pastry and make it soggy. Make sure that the...

    I was quite pleased with myself making this because I made the rough puff pastry from scratch but (due to current supplies of flour) I had no plain flour. I used self-raising flour instead and it worked perfectly well. Please use ready made puff pastry if you wish. I also made the greengage jam...
