Cherry Tarts Recipes

Ingredients :

14-oz can red pitted cherries

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbsp cornstarch

pinch salt

1/4 tsp almond extract

red food coloring

4-oz pkg cream cheese (room temperature)

1 tbsp light cream

1 tsp sugar

8 medium baked tart shells

sweetened whipped cream (optional)

Method :

Drain cherries well. Measure juice and add enough water, if necessary, to make 1 cup (250ml) liquid. Combine 1/2 cups (125ml) sugar, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan. Stir in cherry juice gradually, blending until smooth. Set over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn down heat and cook 1 minute more, stirring. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract and enough coloring to tint a good red. Cool to lukewarm.

Mix cheese, cream and 1 tsp sugar until smooth and blended. Divide this mixture evenly among the baked tart shells. Spread to cover bottom. Top cheese with a few of the cherries, add a little of the thickened juice, then more cherries until both cherries and thickened juice are used up. End with juice so bright red glaze is on top. Chill. Serve topped with whipped cream.

Makes 8
