Your Best Late Winter Tart (Sweet or Savory)

Between now and next Saturday, March 12th at noon (extended deadline, woo-hoo!), we want to see Your Best Late Winter Tart (Sweet or Savory)! For more details and to enter the contest, go here

In celebration of Martha Stewart's New Pies & Tarts Cookbook (no, not an update of the 1985 classic -- all new), we dreamed up this contest together -- and our friends over at MSLO are offering some amazing prizes.

Martha Stewart's New Pies & TartsBehold:

The winner will be flown to New York City on Monday, March 28th, where their winning recipe will be featured on The Martha Stewart Show!

Both finalists will also receive $200 of Martha swag, in addition to our usual bounty of prizes (see below).

For those of you in New York area, Martha will have a pop-up pie and tart shop at Little Owl the Venue at 93 Greenwich Avenue on March 26-27th, where she’ll be selling the new book … and pies!

The fine print: Due to travel and other administrative challenges, finalists must be U.S. residents. But food52ers abroad, we love you! And we hope you'll enter the contest anyway -- we'll still be awarding Editors' Picks from all over.

If any of you are feeling in need of some back-to-basics pastry help, we'd recommend tuning in to Martha's new show on the Hallmark Channel Martha Bakes.

The Martha Stewart Show LogoNew to food52? Brush up on our Contest Rules here. Contest winners will receive great cookware from Williams-Sonoma hand-selected by us, Viking cookware worth up to $150, a bountiful selection of OXO products, and a $50 gift code from Tiny Prints. Runners-up will receive a $100 gift card from Williams-Sonoma and the OXO prize package. All winners and runners-up get a copy of the 2nd food52 cookbook!

I agree Laurie, I loved your photo, it definitely belongs in a frame. I wish we could meet Martha together! I had so much flavorful fun making tarts. I didn't even enter 3 savory tarts I made (they weren't quite perfect). I explored, researched and all in all came out ahead for my culinary investment. I can't imagine having to select the winning recipes ~ so many outstanding ones. Good-luck Laurie ~ stuff me in your suitcase if you win!

I was thinking the same ~ soooo many creative dishes. I'd love to be a judge and have an excuse to make many of tarts and quiches....until then I'll go have another piece of my Extreme Mandarin tart!

Hi Penelope -- so sorry about that. Our site's schedule runs on Eastern time, so the contest closed at noon ET.

Ohhh I see ~ one place it says 12 a.m. EST and the other place it says 12 noon on the 12th of March. So I am going with 12 noon on March 12th ~ hope that is right!

I thought the contest ended at 12:00 a.m. EST on the 12th but there are still entries posted. I have two but figured it was too late. Did it end one hour and 7 minutes ago at 12:00 EST? Thanks for the update.

Since we extended this contest beyond the normal deadline, some automated parts of the site forgot to catch up. Sorry about that -- you have just over an hour left!

One day, you'll have to have a contest...just for the food 52ers abroad.....cause I'd like to meet Martha too.

I agree...I'm always disappointed when I read the fine print that excludes us.

or else collaborate with an airline as well so that the winner can get flown in!

Does a crostata qualify? since some define it as a freeform tart...

I promise this is my last question!!! Can we submit a crustless tart or quiche or do you want buttery flaky crusts that melt in your mouth and add flavor to the dish? (lol ~ I do love crust -but...!)

sorry, one last question. So you said you are good with mini tarts, but what about really mini? Like bite size made in a mini cupcake pan? Just wanted to check before I mini-ized this recipe. :)

Do you cringe at prepared frozen puffed pastries? Do you like to see everything by scratch?

Frozen puff pastry and phyllo dough are fine! We do otherwise prefer a from-scratch crust recipe.

We feel just fine about them (they're even in the contest theme photo above!). Based on your username, we're guessing you like them too!

So "quiches and sweet custard tarts or savory tarts" ~ does that mean no galettes?

Galettes work.

If a produce is available year-round counts on this one, right? or not?

green onions

Green onions work, although they don't feel specifically seasonal. Kind of like herbs. So, yes, go for it, but do keep in mind we may give more weight to recipes that feel more late winter.

Now I have "sing a song of sixpence" stuck in my head. Are blackbirds late winter seasonal? Can we get them to stay in a tart?
