Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (74 votes)

This ultimate fall and winter tart showcases the best fruits of the season: pears, apples and cranberries. Unlike other tarts, the tarte tatin is made upside down in a skillet. You start by cooking the fruit, then top it with the dough, carefully tuck in the edges and let it cook. When it's ready you invert the whole tart onto a plate. It comes out looking beautiful and is actually much easier than you might imagine.

The pan matters!

Don't know what I did wrong, either the pan was slightly to large, or I just didn't think the sauce looked "caramelized " enough to put in the oven yet, but mine didn't work. I let it cook longer on the stove so the sauce got stickier, but then it was just over caramelized after it was done. Overall, I had great crust, with very little fruit that was too sticky to eat.

good fruit combo, and easy overall to make

This was a hit with my family. I liked it so much that I had it for breakfast! I've never made a tart before so I didn't know what to expect but this was easy to follow and it came out perfect.


very easy and delicious.


Delicious, beautiful, and easy!


Absolutely delicious! In addition, it looks beautiful and it's very easy to do.
I have done tartt only with apples and a few cranberries.
And, a frozen pie crust works just fine.
