The list is endless, but we've compiled our best French desserts into a list of essentials. The list runs of the gamut of occasions: master the art of the tart for a treat-yourself weekday dinner, or pull out all the stops for a fancy dinner party with a towering croquembouche that will surprise and delight guests.
His recipe is the real deal: crunchy and caramelized to a deep mahogany brown on the outside, moist and custardy within, and deeply perfumed with dark rum and vanilla bean.
Menu Sign Up. Cherry preserves are a classic filling—choosing a good-quality jam makes all the difference—and the dough itself resembles a cookie dough, with additional eggs lending a cakier texture. It can also be baked in a 9-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom; just be sure to grease the sides with butter before assembling. Cherry Tomato Tarte Tatin Juicy cherry or grape tomatoes are coated in a light caramel to make the "topping" for this tart, but the whole thing is baked upside down in a skillet.
Do most of the steps to prepare it in advance—make the zucchini paste and defrost the puff pastry a few hours or up to two days ahead—but be sure to serve the tart just after baking, turning it out from the pan in front of guests. It tastes best while the caramel is still runny and the warm, topmost layer of dough has a custardy consistency.
Originating in Brittany, a region known for it's salt-forward cuisine, this crust contain a hefty pinch of the flaky stuff; be sure to use a good brand as the delicate flavor will be noticeable here. It's a crust that requires no rolling and very little fuss, making it an exceptional choice for a summer fruit tart.
It adds a clean, bright flavor to the glittering topping. Frozen Chocolate Mousse Marquise au Chocolat This dessert—a fudgy, frozen or semifrozen chocolate mousse that's sometimes coated in ganache, then sliced—likely came from the 17th or 18th century, when royal pastry chefs lived large.
I like to crumble in Speculoos cookies, like Biscoff brand, before freezing, to add crunch and pretty golden flecks, but anything that works with chocolate—from candied ginger to rum-soaked raisins—is fair game. It's at its best when semifrozen or thawed but still chilly. Almond Frangipane Tart with Cranberries and Honeyed Pistachios Frangipane, an almond-based pastry filling, has a nutty fragrance and a consistency between buttery pound cake and airy sponge cake.
In French-style fruit tarts, this classic filling is often studded with poached or fresh fruits. In summer, you can swap out the cranberries in this tart for halved pitted apricots, fresh pitted cherries, or sliced plums. Syrup-poached apples or pears, halved ripe figs, or quince would be delicious in cooler months. Chocolate Ganache Tart with Sea Salt and Espresso Beans A touch of egg is the simple, secret ingredient in this luscious tart's filling.
Just a little gives the combination of chocolate and cream a sliceable, fudgy consistency. The crumbly cocoa-laced crust can be pressed right into a fluted pan, no rolling pin required.

Swap out espresso beans for toasted nuts, chopped brittle, granola, or crushed peppermint candy. Just don't eliminate the sea salt; it adds a bright, irreplaceable contrast to the decadent filling.
Bakeries have to chill their filled eclairs, which makes for soggy centers and mushy crusts; you can freshly fill yours at home and eat them right away. Kugelhopf Pastry chef Christine Ferber's not-too-sweet kugelhopf, an Alsatian cake baked in a distinctive ring mold, has just a few choice raisins per slice.
Baked Apple Terrine with Calvados Calvados, an apple brandy made from double-distilled apple cider aged in oak barrels, is generally made from highly tannic apples. Guillouet-Huard likes to use it to underscore the flavor of sweet cooking apples. Edouard's Chocolate Chip Cookies A French version of the classic American cookie, this recipe adds ground almonds for a result that's chubby and chewy and just a little soft at the center.CoquillesSaint-Jacques GratineedScallops.
