Tips For Making Tart Recipes

Traditionally, the difference between a tart and a pie boils down to the crust. A pie crust is buttery and flakey, while the tart is more of a cookie crust. I used a pie crust for time saving purposes in this recipe. I feel like you get the same flavors with half of the effort. It’s a modern twist, but worth it when you’re a beginner baker.

This Chocolate Hazelnut Tart recipe saves time by using a store-bought pie crust. Certainly, you can make your own crust if you prefer. I’ve never had a problem with soggy crusts, but it’s a complain that many people have about tart recipes. To fix that, you can pre-bake the pie crust for a few minutes prior to filling. If you do decide to use a store-bought crust, you shouldn’t need to do that.

If you want to prevent the pie crust edges from over-browning, cover the edges with aluminum foil after 15 minutes of baking.
