These cute currant tarts come together in four steps

Feb. 20, 2017

Currant tarts are composed of an easy filling and an even easier crust.

Donna Mott of Ooh De Lolli bakes out of a vintage kitchen in downtown Fresno that’s perfect for a vintage recipe like currant tarts.

Her version of this classic needs just five ingredients and a prepared pie crust. Tarts can be made with a number of different fillings, but Zante currants, a type of dried berry, add sweetness to every bite.
