You guys! I made a Cherry Custard Tart!!! I do so little baking these days that I get super excited when I finally get around to it :-). Remember how I had a serious surplus of cherries after the Fourth of July and made Mint Cherry Berry Sangria? Well I also made this tart and I'm stupidly pleased with it. Why? Read on my friends, read on.
There's no cream! Honey yogurt is the base for this tart, making the custard a sinch to bake and a smidge more on the healthy side. Just a smidge though because let's be honest, it's one of those dessertforbreakfastorjustdessert tarts.
It has fresh, light, homemade pie dough. To really simplify this Cherry Custard Tart, or if you're just running short on time, grabbing some already made pie dough is totally cool. However, if you really want to go from scratch and just for taste I suggest you do, I have included the recipe for my orange blossom pie dough (that's right, I got fancy on you there). I also used a large 12 inch tart pan instead of the standard 9 inch size to help the custard bake quicker. So since you'd have to do some rolling out of the store bought dough anyway, might as well just go for the whole shebang!
The cherries. Oh the cherries. They're so perfect right now. Let's keep summer real while we can guys. This Cherry Custard Tart really only works with fresh cherries so it's definitely seasonal. AKA it's time to do some baking!!! Get to it everyone! ????????
