Sweet Cherry Almond Tart (gf)

Sweet Cherry Almond Tart (gf)

Sweet dark cherries combine with crumbly almond shortbread in this cherry almond tart, for a spectacularly simple and crowd-pleasing Summer dessert.

To celebrate the solstice, and kick off the start of Summer, I made you a sweet cherry almond tart, something sweet to eat while you lap up these extra golden hours of daylight. The sun didn’t set until like nine thirty last night (!) – still haven’t gotten used to that.

Not only has this tart become one of my favorite recipes, but it highlights one of our regional, seasonal specialties: sweet cherries.


  • 1 cup finely-ground almond flour
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 10 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • 3 Tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
