Use this recipe for our Cranberry, Almond, and Cinnamon Tart. A food processor yields the flakiest crust, but you can also make this recipe with a pastry blender; work quickly to keep the butter cold.

In this scrumptious tart, the honeyed tang of fresh plums is complemented by the bitter-almond flavor of frangipane, a rich pastry cream. You can substitute peaches or pears for the plums, if desired; serve in wedges topped with dollops of creme fraiche. This recipe was also featured on Martha Stewart Living TV.

Pate Sucree and Pate Sablee: The French often use these two classic crusts for tarts. Pate sucree is light and crisp; pate sablee is rich and crumbly (indeed, its name comes from the French word for "sand"). The former is a little easier to roll out; the latter can be pressed into the pan with your fingertips.
