Whether you celebrate Easter or Passover, you are sure to love this simple Grain Free Spring Fruit Tart that is shaped like an egg! Perfect for guests and fun for the kids!

I saw a beautiful photo of this recipe for a tart made with wheat flour and thought how lovely it would be to make it with a grain free crust. I tweeked one of my favorite crusts for this recipe and it came out great!

Eggs symbolize spring and the holidays that come along with spring! Eggs symbolize the earth, fertility and the circle of life.

Every ancient culture had their own beliefs about the magic and mysteries inside of eggs. There are also many ancient home remedies for various illnesses that used eggs.

Today we celebrate holidays with colorful Easter eggs or a roasted egg on the Passover plate signifying springtime and renewal.

Kid Friendly Grain Free Easter/Passover Egg Tart

This is definitely a hands-on project so enlist your kids!

Making the template for the egg shape was a snap with this template that you can print. Cut out one of the four shapes. Hold it against parchment paper and cut about 1/2″ larger around the egg.

Be sure to taper the bottom so it looks like an egg and not just an oval.

It should measure 6″ long.

From this template, cut out 5 shapes in parchment paper.

It will be easier to shape the dough if you have parchment templates for all 5 crusts.

If you have a few little helpers around, have them make the shapes on a larger piece of parchment paper and transfer to the cookie sheet when ready to bake.

Follow the directions below.

It’s fun to have each child make their own personal tart with the various fruits you provide.

Have the children wash their hands thoroughly before shaping the crust.
