It’s finally baking season—which means it’s time to turn that oven back on and start getting inspired by the new fall harvest. Right now, pumpkins are aplenty, apples are picked fresh, and cranberries won’t be limited to just the freezer section. Take advantage of these seasonal fruits by trying some easy and delicious tart recipes.
Simple Apple Tart
Instead of the usual apple pie this time of year, why not opt for a stunning apple tart with an oat and maple syrup crust instead? Green Healthy Cooking shows how you can make this fall beauty in less than an hour—including baking time.
Pumpkin Cheesecake Tarts
These swirled pumpkin tarts with hazelnut garnish may look intimidating, but The Wood and Spoon has your back in this recipe.

Mini Cider Spiced Cranberry Apple Pies
Got 10 minutes? Good, because that’s all the prep time you need to make these adorable tarts by The Recipe Rebel. Cranberries, apples, cinnamon, and oats give us all the fall feels.

Sometimes, vegans get the short end of the dessert stick—but that’s not the case with this galette from Recipe Runner. Bursting cranberries and baked apples steal the show, while spices like nutmeg and cinnamon bring everything to another aromatic level.
