    This is my kinda baking and tart! Luv that it’s GF without having to use any special flour blends – beautiful and delicious seasonal dessert! 😉

    Wow, this looks amazing! I can’t express how much I want to taste that!

    This is gorgeous. I love the healthier take on the classic fruit tart.

    This has all my favourite things in one tart. Plus it’s so pretty. I love cherries with almond. Amazing together.

    Almond just goes so well with cherries, I bet this tastes amazing! Cherries are the best, especially surrounding by crisp pastry 🙂

    This is beautiful and looks delicious as well! What a wonderful dessert for the next time I have guests over! XO

    Almond and Cherry are two of my favorite things ever! This looks and sounds delicious!

    this looks so darn good! I love that it’s made using almond meal, that’s my favorite type of flour!

    I haven’t made a homemade tart in years! In fact, I wonder if I still have my tart pan? This looks so good and the combination of almond and cherry is making me want to go find my tart pan now! As in, I need this for dessert tonight!! Pinning 🙂

    I am definitely in love with this beauty! I cannot believe how beautiful that crust looks and I am in for anything to do with cherries… definitely sharing and pinning 🙂


    Beautifully done! Cherries and almonds are the perfect pair!!

    Beautifully done! Cherries and almonds are the perfect pair!!


    Oh, what a wonderful combination of flavours! It sounds like an amazing tart!


    What a beautiful tart! I just love cherry and almond together, and I like recipe is a little healthier with the ingredients you decided to use.

    I made my first almond meal crust a few years back and I’ve never looked back!! This whole tart just looks scrumptious!!


    Boy, this looks outstanding! Love the cherry filling alone, but this crust and topping, wow.


    Totally in love with this—such great flavor combo and I love that there is no refined sugar added. Pinned.


    Beautiful tart, so elegant looking. I bet it tastes so too.

    Paul


    That looks so good could definitely go a slice of that


    It is gorgeous! And the flavors are perfect! Pinned and shared!

    Hi Neli – Thank you for this lovely recipe. I love the combination of flavors and my family really enjoyed this over Memorial weekend. One question – the topping ingredients list includes 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract but I don’t see it used in the preparation steps. Do you add it with the butter step?

    Also, although I baked the crust until it was brown before adding the filling/topping and baking the tart, when it came time to serve it, the crust was soggy and fell apart. Any advice for avoiding that? I am leaning toward just making a “cherry almond crumble” next time, eliminating the bottom crust, as the topping is substantial enough to carry the dish and the crust/topping combination kind of overwhelmed the cherries. But I would love to perfect the almond crust to apply it to other desserts.

    Thanks again!
