Ingredients & Directions

1/2 c Plain flour
1/8 ts Salt
2 oz Hazelnuts, roasted
2 tb Sugar
2 oz Butter
1 Egg yolk
2 ts Water

4 Egg yolks
1/4 c Sugar
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 3/4 c Cream
3 ts Gelatine
2 tb Water

2 lb Cherries, canned
2 ts Gelatine
2 ts Rum (see note)

MAKE PASTRY: Sift flour and add all dry ingredients together, with
the sugar in the centre, on a pastry board. Add the butter
(softened), egg yolk and water. Work the liquids into the sugar,
until it is creamy.

MAKE TOPPING: Drain the cherries and reserve about 1 cup of the
syrup. We don’t use commercial canned cherries. I would suggest a
“light” syrup. Arrange the pitted cherries artistically over the top
of the tart.

Put the reserved syrup, gelatine and rum (we usually use cherry
brandy or kirsch) into a saucepan and heat (stirring) until gelatine
dissolves. Cool the liquid and pour over the cherries. Refrigerate
until set.


* A thoroughly decadent desert — This has simply got to be the best
dessert you’ll ever try. My wife has made this one many times. The
only complaint ever lodged is that there was not enough.

* Don’t be put off by the complexity of the recipe; it is well worth
the effort.

* All the egg whites “wasted” can be used in something else, such as
a Pavlova.
