It’s Christmas time and things are definitely going full steam around my house right now. I bet it is the same around your house too. So for this month’s Bake Along I decided to save the stress on someone else and I would be the host.
I realize that many of you will be too busy to join along. I get it, it’s busy. BUT if you do have an afternoon free for baking this week, I hope you will consider trying these absolutely wonderful, divine, fantastic Cherry Tarts.
This picture was taken a few years ago. As you can see, my son absolutely LOVES Cherry Tarts!”
I warn you in advance though, once you make them, they will become a Christmas must each year like they are in my house!❤️😊
If you are interested in joining in the fun, here is how to do it:
Easy, right?! Just comment that you want to join along and you are in:)❤️. Now for the recipe:
Cherry TartsRecipe by Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day!Yields 18 Tarts Ingredients:
- 1 can of cherry pie filling
- 2.5″ Round cookie cutter
- 1 1/4c shortening
- 3c flour
- 1tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2T vinegar
- 1/3c cold water
- 2c powdered sugar
- 1/4c milk
- 1tsp vanilla
Directions: Make crust by cutting shortening, flour, and salt together using a pastry cutter or two knives. The shortening should be about pea sized. In a small bowl combine the egg, vinegar, and water. Add to the flour mixture. Mix until combined. If you need more pictures and directions on making pie crust, I have a more detailed recipe here. Flour your counter top and roll the dough all out about 1/8″ -1/4″ thick.
With a round cookie cutter, cut as many circles as will fit in the dough. Place one or two cherries in the center of half of the circles. Less really is more with these Tarts. Place the other half of the circles on top of the cherries and seal the edges with a fork.
I have been making tarts for many years, so I have purchased a Pampered Chef Cut-n-Seal to help me seal the tarts. It is easy to use and makes the tarts look very pretty, but it doesn’t make them taste any better 🙂
Place the tarts on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350* for 30min. Some of the filling may ooze out a bit, that is fine. Make icing by combining milk, sugar and vanilla. Glaze warm tarts.
Finished! These Tarts are SWEET❤️❤️!
