There are many varieties of grapes to choose from when making this elegant dessert. Create a pattern with the colors. We made alternating circles of seedless red and green.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • Pastry Cream for Grape Tart

  • 3 to 3 1/2 cups seedless red and green grapes

  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. In a food processor, pulse flour, sugar, and salt. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 2 tablespoons ice water; process until mixture just comes together when squeezed (add more water if necessary). Add oats; pulse to combine.

  3. Press dough onto bottom and 1 inch up sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Remove sides of pan; cool crust.

  4. Whisk cooled pastry cream until smooth. Spread evenly in crust; arrange grapes on top; press in.

  5. Chill at least 2 hours and up to 1 day. Just before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.
