Since fall has decided to poke it’s head into my life, many of my favorite fruits have been disappearing from the grocery store. This past visit to the store, I noticed that many of the cherries were still big and plump, and I wanted to do one last big HECKYEAHILOVECHERRIES bake off.

I decided to make something easy. Something I could throw together in no time and have ready for dessert that same night. Something I didn’t have to worry too much about too much – a tart!

This tart is sweet and delicious, with a thin and flaky crust. I think it was supposed to serve 6 people, but the boy and I devoured this baby in 2 sittings. Hope you like it!

To make this roll your dough out onto a lightly floured piece of parchment paper, into a 14 inch circle. Transfer the parchment and dough onto a baking sheet. Mix together filling ingredients until evenly coated.

Pour onto the centre of the tart and spread out to within 2 inches of the edge.

Fold up the edges to keep the filling snuggly inside. Brush the pastry with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 375ºF for 1 hour, or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

  22. ohladycakes says:

    Welllllll, I really wish I had seen this when cherries were still available at the farmer’s market. Until next year.. *sigh*

    Looks delicious! I wonder how it would taste with white cherries? (those are my personal favorite)

  26. I love cherries and this galette (French name for free-form pie) looks amazing! I’m not sure how this tart could feed 6-8 either … seems better when shared just between two :-)

  27. This looks delicious! Think it would still measure up using frozen, thawed cherries? Would love to make one soon.
