You can certainly get away with eating tarts all year round, but there’s something particularly attractive about serving a tart during the holidays. And tarts don’t need to be relegated to the sweets category either — there are plenty of delectable, savoury tarts worth your culinary efforts this season. Here’s a list of our favourite dessert-appropriate tart recipes, followed by the very best savoury tart recipes. It’s the holidays, after all — go ahead and have dessert first.

1. Clementine Tart

Not only is this clementine tart bursting with a punch of unexpected, yet pleasant flavour thanks to the crushed pink peppercorn, but it’s almost too impressive-looking to eat… almost. Just look at those candied, edible flowers!

2. Chocolate Raspberry Tart

When it comes to dessert, you really can’t go wrong with chocolate. And when it comes to pairing flavours with chocolate, you really can’t go wrong with raspberries. So, this tart is a safe bet. A safe, delicious bet.

3. Fig Mascarpone Tart

Can’t decide whether to have a sweet fruit or something creamy for dessert? Don’t. Have both. The mascarpone and cream cheese in this tart complement the figs masterfully — top it all off with some whipped cream if you dare.

4. No-Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Meringue Tarts

Making a tart doesn’t need to be a whole ordeal. These little ones marry pumpkin and chocolate in rich cookie crust, and they don’t require any baking at all.

6. Caramel Apple Tart

When time isn’t on your side, keep it simple with a caramel apple tart. Just bake the apples in a puff pastry with cream and brown sugar on top, and you’ll have a dish that looks like it came from a treasured family recipe.

7. Butter Tart

There’s no single-serve dessert quite as addictive as a classic butter tart. Serve them to your guests and watch as they disappear in the blink of an eye.

8. Three Cheese Zucchini Tart

Good food starts with cheese. Great food starts with three different types, and this savoury tart stashes its triple cheesy goodness underneath a layer of sliced zucchini.
