2/3 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
1-3/4 cups whole frozen cherries, pitted*

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line tart pan with pie dough and cover with parchment paper. Fill paper-covered crust with weights (dried beans or other pie weights) and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Carefully remove paper and weights. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F.
  2. In a food processor, combine almonds, flour and powdered sugar. Grind until fine. Add butter and pulse to combine. With the processor running, add eggs, one at a time.
  3. Pour mixture into baked crust and smooth. Place whole cherries in mixture and bake until firm, about 35 minutes. Let cool at room temperature.
