Summer Recipe: Foraged Berry Tart
I get really excited when I see berries growing on the side of the road. I inherited this obsession from my mother who, during our vacation each summer in northern Idaho, would go on a walk with a big bag and not allow herself to return until she had picked a thousand huckleberries. We’d make dozens of jars of jam, huckleberry pancakes, and frozen kiddie drinks. I don’t remember us ever looking at a recipe.

Recipe: Fig and Raspberry Bakewell Tarts
I can think of few finer uses for jam than a bakewell tart, a scrumptious British dessert combining buttery short crust pastry with sweet fruit preserves and almond frangipane. For these mini bakewell tarts made in a muffin tin, I used raspberry jam and early autumn figs, a lovely summer-meets-fall pairing.Biting into a bakewell tart is pure bliss – on the outside you have a flaky crust, which holds rich, chewy almond frangipane and below that, a layer of sweet jam.

Recipe: Winter Greens & Gruyere Tart with a Cornmeal Millet Crust
This time of year can be a tricky one for inspired breakfasts. Oatmeal is my go-to on weekdays, and on the weekends we often flail for something a bit more interesting but no more complex. With this morning tart, flail no more! I call this a morning tart instead of a quiche because I tend to think of quiche as more major, perhaps even towering.

Gluten-Free Recipe: Rhubarb Coconut Honey Tart
Jammy pink rhubarb, coconut custard, and a honey-rose water drizzle! Who needs gluten (or dairy or nuts or refined sugar, for that matter) when you’ve got all this going on?! A weeknight dinner was an unusual inspiration for this dessert, but the idea took hold as soon as I made the Fennel & Coconut Tart recipe from Vegetarian Everyday by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl of Green Kitchen Stories. (A review of their excellent new cookbook coming later this week!

Late Summer Recipe: Polenta Tart with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
Summer may be over according to the school and holiday calendars, but my kitchen counters continue to overflow with bowls of sweet cherry tomatoes that I associate with picnic season. In fact, it was a picnic that inspired this recipe for a polenta and roasted cherry tomato tart, and it’s just right for carrying to your local park. Of course, if you can’t squeeze in time for a picnic these days, the tart is just as delightful on a dinner table or in a lunch box.

Recipe: Free-Form Apple Tart
As we wrap up edits on The Kitchn’s upcoming cookbook, I’ve been thinking a lot about my first book, The Greyston Bakery Cookbook, published in 2007. I learned many tough lessons that first go-around about how to make a book, but one thing I still return to and use is the recipes. There are many I make regularly when it comes time to get dessert on the table.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Pear Tart with Walnut Crust
Fall is tart time for me, and I brought a few of my favorite autumn flavors to this dessert offering. It’s made with a rich walnutty tart crust, filled with creamy golden frangipane and topped with tender slices of spiced poached pears. And it holds a little gift for those of us baking for a diverse group: it just happens to be gluten-free. Don’t you love desserts that do it all? This tart has an element that may be unfamiliar: frangipane. What is it?
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Onion and Mushroom Tart
This is the time of year when I start craving savory tarts. This vegetarian tart has vinegar-roasted onions, mushrooms, and ricotta cheese, making it a great appetizer for a group, or a dinner for two when served with a side salad. Why not? It’s getting cold out there and sometimes you just need a dinner that feels like the food equivalent of sliding on a cashmere sweater: decadent and yet perfectly functional.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Cranberry Tart with Nut Crust
I know about a secret cranberry spot on Long Island, and from foraging trips there, this recipe was born. Each fall I’d spend two or three weekends on my knees in my wellies, gathering those ruby jewels autumn. I’d rinse and freeze enough for Thanksgiving, then use the rest to play with in the kitchen.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Lemon Yogurt Icebox Tart
It’s spring, the sun is shining, and that feels like reason enough to celebrate. It’s just the right time to serve this bright, zingy lemon tart, a simple, no-bake dessert that combines Greek yogurt and bottled lemon curd in a tender pastry crust. It’s a pretty, no-fuss sweet perfect for a sunny weekend brunch. The first time I encountered the happy marriage of lemon curd and Greek yogurt was while catering a baby shower last spring.

Recipe: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Lettuce, Green Onion & Cheese Tart
During our month devoted to the glory of vegetables, we wanted to call out a few common yet perhaps under-appreciated vegetables and show a fresh, diverse set of ways to enjoy them. Last week, it was radishes; this week, lettuce. As Jill argued passionately yesterday, lettuce is not just the background to a decent salad. It’s not a bland way to shovel in your vegetables. Lettuce has a sweetness and a flavor all its own — and it deserves to be appreciated on its own terms.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Peach and Raspberry Tart
Summer baking sounds like a contradiction. Who wants to turn on the oven when the temperature tops 90 degrees in the shade? On the other hand, the anticipation of fruit pies, cobblers, and tarts at the end of a meal make it worth heating up the kitchen. I found that making a quick tart with puff pastry is the perfect compromise on a hot summer day, and it ends Shabbat dinner on a delightfully sweet note.

How To Make Freeze-and-Bake Tart Shells
Mini tart shells are great to have on hand; they’re ready to bake into a quick dessert or savory bite at the drop of a hat. This tart dough is stable, rich with butter, and designed specifically to be frozen and then baked straight from the freezer — but that’s not to say you can’t bake them right away. We’ve got you covered on all fronts.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Avocado Coconut Tartlets
Avocado toast is as delicious as it is ubiquitous. Here I’ve riffed on the concept and elevated the idea for a ladies’ tea to create these avocado tartlets. When blended with a little vanilla and maple syrup, avocado cream becomes a revelatory sweet pastry filling. I knew I had to include this very popular recipe from my book for our tea party; it hits all the right notes for a crowd: sweet, creamy, and a touch salty from the pastry crust.

Caramelized Onion and Phyllo Tart
Caramelized onions are the backbone of many dishes, but it's time to give these humble alliums a turn in the spotlight with this tart.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Butternut Squash Rose Tart
This savory tart is a stunner — there’s no denying that. Blossoms made of butternut squash ribbons, sage- and garlic-flecked ricotta, and a tender olive oil crust make for a dish that’s 100 percent worthy of any and all Thanksgiving dinners. But the best part? Your guests will appreciate just how fancy it looks, but they’ll never know just how easy it is to make.

Recipe: Tiny Party Pizza Tarts
If it were up to my fiancé, the only appetizer that would be served in our apartment would be Bagel Bites. That’s not what these are, but I’ll tell you — he declared that these are better. Maybe it’s because the hard, flavorless mini bagels are replaced with extra-buttery, flaky puff pastry squares, which are topped with juicy fresh tomatoes and melted fresh mozzarella.

Recipe: Individual Blackberry Bourbon Slumps
With May upon us and hot days already starting to hit Los Angeles, we’ve started thinking about backyard BBQs and the abundance of fruit that summer brings. Then when we found blackberries on sale at the market for $1 per container, we decided to get a jump on summer and make some individual blackberry bourbon slumps. What’s a slump, you ask?

Late Summer Recipe: Plum Pandowdy
A pandowdy flips the traditional pie on its head. Here, it’s not all about a beautiful crust. It’s about the fruit. Juicy, ripe, flavor-packed fruit picked at the very peak of its season and not a second sooner. This one is for the fruit-lovers.It’s very possible that you’ve never heard of a pandowdy. This is a classic New England fruit dessert in the tradition of cobblers, grunts, slumps, and crisps.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Upside-Down Tomato Corn Cake
When you’ve reached the point of salad fatigue and are looking for a way to make the most of sweet summer corn and juicy red tomatoes, look no further than this savory cake. It’s inspired by tomato cobbler and skillet corn bread, with a nod to the sweetness of a classic tarte Tatin. This cake comes out of the oven with a crisp edge and a light and tender crumb.

Reader Recipe: Easy Blueberry Cobbler
It’s been a while since we had a reader recipe: this one comes from Melinda in Pittsburgh. “I picked up fresh blueberries at the Farmer’s Market this week and made this super simple dessert from my South Carolina childhood. There are many different types of cobbler crusts/toppings–buckles, crumbles, brown-bettys–but this is my favorite, a sweet, buttery, rich batter, with crispy and chewy bits. Delicious plain, but even better with vanilla ice cream.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cobbler
I am a chocoholic and not afraid to admit it. I’ll take a dark, rich, oozy dessert over a fruit-based one any day. So while this “chocolate cobbler” is really no cobbler at all, it doesn’t mean I’m not going to eat it. And like it. I don’t judge! It seems recipes for chocolate cobbler started going viral at some point last year. I immediately made a mental ‘must bake’ note and then wondered why I’d never had it — or heard even of it!
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Skillet Apple Crisp
Was there ever a dessert more tailor-made for a skillet than a rustic, streusel-topped fruit crisp? Sure, you can assemble it in a gratin dish or your favorite Pyrex casserole, but I stand behind the idea that serving this oh-so-American autumn apple dessert in a cast iron skillet is the presentation it deserves — nay, warrants. If we’re talking semantics, the presence of oats sets this dessert firmly in crisp territory, but I’m not standing on ceremony here.

Cobbler may be the best reason to turn on the stove in the summer. Jammy fruit, crisp and buttery topping — all you need is a scoop of ice cream.

You can make it with a spatula or a soup spoon, in a New York apartment or at your vacation beach house, with peaches or with any other fruit you want to turn into dessert.

Recipe: No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Pie
Oh, hello there! Were you just thinking you’d like a bite of cheesecake without the bother of water baths or a hot kitchen? One that would, perhaps, win you friends and earn you accolades at backyard picnics this summer? Why, me too! Great minds really do think alike. While you could theoretically start the ice cream for this pie on Saturday morning and serve it that evening, it’s better and easier to think of this as a two-day affair.

Recipe: Strawberry-Sour Cream Scones with Brown Sugar Crumble
Strawberry season is starting! Strawberry season is starting! You’ll find me stuffing strawberries in my face from now until the last pints leave the farmers’ market. These scones are a riff on one of my favorite combos: fresh strawberries dipped in sour cream and coated with brown sugar. They’re just the thing for a lazy weekend brunch with the windows open and bottomless cups of coffee close by.

Recipe: Plum Crumble
Crumbles and crisps are the ultimate fall dessert because they’re simple to put together and humble in appearance, but will light up a fall evening like nothing else. While apple crisp is a classic this time of year, the plums have been so irresistible in the markets lately that we thought we’d use them while we still can. The secret to making a really fantastic plum crumble is using ripe, in-season plums.

We’ve seen other versions of corn-syrup-free pecan pies that use maple syrup, honey, or cooked brown sugar.
