The filling can be sweet such as fruit or a sweet custard.
It can be savory like meat, cheese or a savory custard.
Depending on the type of tart,
the pastry shell can be baked and
then filled or filled and then baked.
Tarts can be bite-size and often served as hors d'oeuvre or
individual size, sometimes called tartlets.
They can be used as appetizers, entrees or desserts
