What's the best apple for tarts?

You can’t go wrong serving tarts (or, who are we kidding, making them just for yourself!). With an abundance of different flavors and recipes, there really is a tart for everyone. Apple tarts have long been a favorite; served hot or room temperature, they are always a crowd-pleaser.

Be sure to have Golden Delicious or Jonagold apples on hand for an exceptional tart you won’t soon forget. Braeburn is another great choice thanks to its sweet-tart and spicy flavor.

Pro tips

  • If crust begins to brown quickly, make a pie shield. Fold a square of foil into quarters, then triangles. Measure the tart, then cut out the center of the foil. Press the outer ring around the edge.
