Armed with a box of “Pepperidge Farm” puff pastry, a can of cherry filling, some sliced almonds and some almond flavoring, I made a rustic looking cherry tart. I guess that is what it could be called.
Ready for the oven.
I must still have pizza on the brain because I managed to make this dessert look like a pizza.
I added a teaspoon of almond extract to the cherry filling, I brushed egg white around the crust, sprinkled some sugar around the crust and then I added the almonds.
Next time I make this I will only use one sheet for the center and cut the other sheet into strips and use the strips to form a crust. Using two sheets on top of one another didn’t allow for the center to cook as well as it should have.
Just the same, the flavor of the almond extract and the cherries was delicious.
