Scrumptious Fruit Tarts!

Fruit tarts are an amazingly delicious dessert that will satisfy almost any sweet tooth while keeping things light! The hallmark of a scrumptious fruit tart is the balance of flavors that come from a light creamy filling, crumbly cookie-like crust, and of course, a tart fruit such as fresh raspberries or a peach glaze. Fruit tarts are an excellent choice for a healthy dessert that won’t be too filling. Below are some of the most mouthwatering types of fruit tarts.

Types of Fruit Tarts:

  • Authentic French Fruit Tart – This tart will transport you to the Parisian streets lined with bakeries! A French tart consists of a pastry crust, vanilla cream filling, fresh fruit of your choosing (strawberries are never wrong), and a fruit tart glaze. 
  • Chocolate Strawberry Tart – This elegant dessert is a great way to impress company. The recipe calls for a dangerous combination of chocolate custard, chocolate dough, strawberries, and sea salt. 
  • Peach Blueberry tart – This tart has a graham cracker crust, traditional cream or custard filling, and a perfect combination of peaches and blueberries. 
  • Pomegranate and Pear Tart – This exotic tart features a pistachio shortbread crust, cream filling, and an irresistible mixture of pear and pomegranate. 
  • Pear Cranberry Tart – This festive tart is a perfect holiday choice with a classic dough crust, creamy filling, and layers of fresh pear slices and cranberry glaze

Fabulous Fruit Pie Delights

No matter the time of year, a fruit pie is a great way to end any meal. The best thing about fruit pies is that fruit pies can use fresh or frozen fruit, unlike other baked goods. With over 185 million pies sold every year, it’s easy to see why this is a favorite dessert. 

Since 1945, Wawona has held the firm belief that freezing fresh fruit allows for optimum color, sweetness, and texture. That means that unlike canned fruit, Wawona’s frozen fruit will mimic fresh-picked fruit and is perfect for pies all year round.

Strawberry Pie
Traditionally a summer favorite sometimes served with rhubarb or whipped cream. These pies are known to be open-topped, meaning they only require a bottom crust.

Peach Pie
Normally a two-crust style pie, but sometimes it is made with a crumble topping. This sweet pie is a southern favorite where peach trees grow in the warmer weather and are excellent picnic pies.

Mixed Berry Pie
A winter favorite. This pie also makes use of a top and bottom crust. Commonly you will find blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries in any combination in a mixed berry pie. Normally a hearty pie served with whipped cream or ice cream.
