The French term for "tart", this food item is a common pastry that can contain sweet or savory ingredients. Round and short-walled, a Tarte pastry is open at the top and does not contain a crust covering the food within. Similar in shape and appearance but smaller in size, a Tartelette is the smaller version of the Tarte. While the Tarte is most often considered a food to be sliced into individual servings or is made as a round individual serving, the Tartelette is a bite-sized pastry that is more commonly prepared as an appetizer, a very small dessert or as a piece of candy.
