A tart is a fantastic choice for dessert. Traditionally a baked dessert, these tart recipes show you how to take these tantalizing treats from the oven to the table. Try something truly Southern, like our Muscadine Pudding Tarts—they use the fruit’s juice to give it an amazing color, flavor, and sweetness. For another regional flavor, enjoy the Sweet Tea Icebox Tart because nothing is more Southern than sweet tea. We also sprinkled in a few savory tart options – perfect for appetizers at your next holiday party or summer celebration. For more traditional tart recipes you’ll love our mouthwatering Rich Chocolate Tart and the Strawberry Tart.
