Black Cherry Tart Recipe
Some of the best homemade French cherry tart recipes you’ve ever made!
➡️ A cherry tart is a dessert that is perfect for any occasion. It is made with a tart shell and is filled with sweet cherries or sour cherries. The first way to make a cherry tart is to fill the shell with pastry cream and add fresh cherries, brushed with a clear glaze called nappage. The second method to make cherry tart is to spread frangipane (almond filling) onto the tart shell, add cherries, and bake it.
➡️ One of my favorite sweet tart recipes is black cherry tart. It is true that you can make a cherry tart with any type of cherries, including sour cherries, but the black cherry tart is highly appreciated by me and my family because the black cherries are among the sweetest varieties of cherries and have a fleshy and very juicy pulp.
➡️ Traditional cheery tarts are made by pressing a tart dough into a tart pan, baking it until slightly golden, then filling it with cherries (possibly with custard as well), and baking again. The classic French tart involves making a typical dough, which today is available in some stores. However, making a tart dough at home isn’t difficult at all. Before filling the tart shell, the cherries can be mixed with sugar if they aren’t sweet enough.
Making Homemade Black Cherry Tart Is A Breeze!
➡️ Cherry tart is sometimes referred to as a cherry pie but has no pie-like crust, and differs from a pie in two ways. Firstly, cherries are not used to fill a pie shell but are instead placed on top, and secondly, there is no double crust, so the top and the bottom of the tart are not sealed, but have a border of pastry cream, which is typically sweet, but not overly so. However, the definition between tart and pie is very shallow and they overlap many times.
➡️ It doesn’t matter if you call it black cherry tart or black cherry pie (which, by the way, is one of my favorite recipes for Hungarian homemade cakes), the recipe shared on this page is extremely delicious and worth trying at least once during the peak season of black cherries, that is, in June.
➡️ To get great results with your black cherry tart, be sure to use fresh, ripe cherries. The key to making a successful baked or unbaked cherry tart is using fruit that tastes good raw. The best cherry to use for this tart is a sweet variety similar to black cherries. Another tip is to make mini tartlets. Instead of making one large tart, you can make individually portioned smaller tartlets. The advantage is that the tart shells will have a shorter baking time, plus they can be served more easily without having to cut them up into slices. Otherwise, preparing the pastry cream and the other steps for making the tartlets are the same.

Below is a culinary article that I found interesting about making a delicious cherry tart.
How to make the pastry: put 180g of plain flour in the bowl of a food processor, add 90g butter cut into chunks, and process for a few seconds until they resemble fine, fresh breadcrumbs. Add 1 heaped tablespoon of icing sugar. Pour in enough cold water (about 2 tbsp) to bring the dough together, then roll it into a ball. Wrap in greaseproof paper and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes while you make the filling.[…]
