Ingredients

  • • 125 g Cold unsalted butter
  • • Pinch of salt
  • For the filling
  • • 170 ml Single cream
  • • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • • 2 Eggs
  • • 4 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • • 2 tbsp Plain flour
  • • 2 tbsp Almond meal
  • • 450 g Fresh Cherries (pitted)
Directions
  • Step 1 For the crust: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Have a 24cm/10-inch round loose-bottomed tart tin ready.
  • Step 2 In a large mixing bowl, stir together butter and sugar. Then, add in flour and salt, mix well to make a soft dough. Shape it into a disc and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.

  • Step 5 Remove from the oven and remove the baking beans and foil.
  • Step 6 For the filling: Whisk together the cream, eggs, vanilla, almond meal and sugar. Now add the flour and whisk until well combined.
  • Step 7 Arrange the cherries over the pastry base and slowly pour the cream filling evenly over the cherries.
  • Step 8 Return the tart to the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the filling seems firm.
  • Step 9 Leave to cool on a wire rack and dust some icing sugar over the top. Serve this delicious Fresh Cherry Tart with cream or ice cream.
