Although I cannot attest to how these taste, these gorgeous pies & tarts are truly beautiful to look at, and would make a visually impressive dessert at your next dinner party.
We’ve included both Pies & Tarts in this collection because – although distinctly different desserts – they are both baked dishes, wrapped in golden crust and filled with sweet or savory goodness.
Although we will likely focus more on the sweeter side of pies & tarts, you may find a beautiful savory pie or tart creeping into the list as we progress.
And if you get hungry while reading this, don’t worry… you’re not alone!
We hope you enjoy this collection of delicious looking Pies & Tarts as much as we enjoyed curating it.

Strawberry Rhubarb White Chocolate Mini Tarts
Not to toot my own horn, but these little morsels are my very own creation. I figured I might as well add them to this list.
Plum and Nectarine Frangipane Tart
Delicate swirls of plum and nectarine combine to create the extraordinary tart.
Lemon Tart with Redcurrants and Strawberries
I love the way the dark red fruit circles the pale yellow of the lemon filling like a flavorful moon.
I LOVE Strawberry Pie
In fairness, it’s the top crust on these creations that earned them a spot (or two) on this list. The inside is just diced strawberries, which wouldn’t make for much of a pie once it’s baked.
You can follow the food artist on Instagram.
Key Lime Tart with Chocolate Almond Crust
The contrast of the dark chocolate crust against the pale pastel green of the key lime filling is quite striking. Top that off by baking this “pie/tart” in a tart pan instead of the traditional pie plate, giving you fluted edges which add to the visual impact of the finished tart.
Rhubarb & Raspberry Frangipane Tart with Almond Praline
The tangy goodness of rhubarb and raspberries combine in this gorgeous frangipane tart.

Ok, so maybe – technically – this shouldn’t be on this list because it’s crafted from puff pastry. But it is SOOOO cute that I simply couldn’t resist.
My argument is that it’s puff pastry on the outside, but pure pie in the middle… and I’m sticking with that argument!

German Sanddorn Pie
