31 sweet tarts to brighten up your day

Try stopping at just one slice.

Jaclyn Koludrovic's gluten-free lemon verbena, white chocolate and fig tart
There's a lot that happens when a sweet tart is served up. There's the beauty as the spoon sinks into the layered fruit top, through the yielding, custardy middle, and the sweet resistance of the pastry base. Some like their sweet tarts rich and chocolate-filled; others, tessellated with the best of the season's pickings. Whichever recipe you choose, one thing is for sure: you won't be able to stop at one slice.
