Fresh cherry tart
2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
about 1/4 cup sugar (unbleached)
juice and zest of half a lemon
about 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cherries, sugar, lemon, and tapioca into a medium bowl. Let sit while you make the crust (at least 15 minutes). Press the crust into the tart pan, making sure to get it up around all the sides. Add the filling to the crust. Place the tart pan on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the crust has turned golden brown and the filling is slightly bubbling. Let cool before serving to allow the filling to set.
