With summer upon us, we've been collecting bushels of berries and piles of peaches for a few weeks now, and there is no better way to showcase them than in tarts. Essentially open-faced pies, tarts display the vibrant colors of the fresh fruits and provide a tasty vehicle for the summer fruits that are available.
What we really love is their versatility—feel free to swap blackberries for strawberries or plums for peaches depending on what looks good at the market. Or just steal the crust and make the topping totally your own.
