Where Did The First Tart Come From?

Some say that tarts started in medieval pie making and that the first came from Italy dating to the 1500’s . Others say that it came from French sisters Stephanie and Carolin Tatin, that ran a hotel (Hôtel Tatin in Lamotte-Beuvron) in the 1880s with the name being Tarte des Demoiselles Tatin” or the tart of two unmarried women named Tatin.

Can I Make This Apple Tart Gluten-Free?

Yes! you would have to use these gluten-free graham crackers instead of the regular ones in the recipe.

Can I Make This Recipe Sugar Free?

I’m sure you could but you would have to make the graham crackers from scratch with a SWERVE type of natural sugar replacement product or purchase these sugar-free graham crackers. We have not tried this but it would be easy.

What Is The Difference Between A Pie And A Tart?

A pie can be sweet or savory and have one or two crusts. A tart is sweet or savory and has one puff pastry shell on the bottom and an open top. The tart is thinner than a pie.
