August 11: National Raspberry Tart Day

These savory pastry dishes are an American favorite — it’s no wonder today is National Raspberry Tart Day! In case you’re wondering, a tart is a type of pie with an open top. Sweetened fruits such as raspberries are often arranged on the pastry and then baked in the oven.

Tarts were first introduced during Medieval times and can be made either savory or sweet. Raspberry tarts are one of the more famous types of tarts, so try your hand at baking one today in celebration of this divine dessert!
