    Units: US | Metric



    • 453.59 g tart cherries, pitted (drained canned cherries could be used instead)
    • 113.39 g butter, cut into small pieces (one stick)
    • 118.29 ml flour
    • 113.39 g sugar



    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10" springform tart pan.
    2. 2
    3. 3
      Sift flour into a large mixing bowl, and make a well in the center. Crumble the yeast into the well, then sprinkle the sugar and salt over it.
    4. 4
      Put the milk in a small saucepan with the butter. Gently heat the milk and butter until the butter has melted. Pour this over the flour/yeast. Knead the mixture by hand until it forms a smooth dough.
    5. 5
      Cover dough and allow to rest in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until dough has doubled in volume.
    6. 6
      Place risen dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it again.
    7. 7
      Roll dough out and place it into the prepared tart pan, pressing the dough up the sides of the pan.
    8. 8
    9. 9
      Place the cherries in the prepared shell. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Using a pastry blender or two forks, cut in the butter until mixture becomes crumbly. Sprinkle crumbly mixture evenly over cherries.
    10. 10
      Bake tart in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for approximately 10 minutes.
    11. 11
    12. 12
      In a small mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 2 tbs of water or milk. Stir until smooth. If needed, add more water or milk, 1/2 tsp at a time, until desired consistency for drizzling is reached. Drizzle glaze over slightly cooled tart.

      Wow! I Decided to make this after Random Rachel's choice for her favorite recipe of the ZWT6. Now I know why! I used 14 oz. of defrosted, previously frozen dark sweet cherries and 2 oz. of frozen raspberries. I was so anxious to eat it that I glazed it a little early, but when a tart smells so good how could I resist. I was thrilled with the results! I noticed that the servings says 1 tart. Which is accurate because I'm not sure I can stop at 1 piece! Thanks Muffin! Made for ZWT 6 by an Unruly Under the INfluence!

      This was amazing! I thought the yeast crust would be a little weird - it was perfect! I had to use two 15 oz cans of drained cherries to cover the crust of my 10" spring form pan. (I'm glad I picked up the extra can!) For ZWT6 N.
