Cherries are a family favorite in my house. I look forward to summer every year just so I can make Sweet Cherry Pie from Cook’s Illustrated. When I saw this recipe for Cherry Crumb Tart I knew I wanted to make it and I was equally glad that it was chosen for this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie.
Oh man was this delicious, now I have two favorite recipes to make every summer. I did all of Dorie’s optional ingredients as we have had great success with following them. I added the zest of one orange, cardamom and instead of kirsch I used Chambord as it is what I had on hand. They all worked great. My notes that I put in the cookbook are: delicious, fabulous, wouldn’t change a thing, yum! Update: I gave a serving to one of my co-workers who promptly demanded for the recipe. My husband’s comment “you could put cardboard between those two layers and I would eat it”. He has had Dorie’s sweet tart dough many times and I guess the topping was a winner.
Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. We don’t publish the recipes, instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see if the others thought it was yum go here.
