The secret to making no-pan rustic fruit tarts

Opt for a pie pastry crust or an oatmeal-flour crust made with sugar, salt, water and olive oil. Sprinkle the crust with almond meal and sugar, to better absorb the juice from the fruits. Spread your fruits across the entire surface, leaving a small border to fold over the filling.

Baker's secret: Brush the edges with milk and sprinkle with brown sugar, which won't melt too much when cooking and will give the border a glistening, crunchy finish.

Now that you know how it's done, here are 11 delectable ideas to whet your appetite for rustic fruit tart!
