Why Le instead of La
I found a sentence "elle fait *une bonne tarte aux fruits et elle invite des amis pour *le goûter" in the dictation exercise that I took today. In this case, why they use "le" for "une bonne tarte aux fruits"?

It is 'le goûter' as it means the tea time meal but I do agree that it is somewhat misleading...

Bonjour Win !
Here it depends what you're meaning to say:
- She's inviting some friends to taste it -> pour la goûter
- She's inviting some friends for tea time -> pour le goûter
Both are equally correct, just meaning different things ;)
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !

Thanks! That makes sense, but I had never heard of "le goûter" as teatime.
(thought the French left tea time to the Brits!)
