38 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 MB Cherries on top CHERRY ALMOND TART Recipe: EMMA BRAZ. Photography: ROB PALMER. Ingredients: Serves: 8. 125g butter, softened; 1/4 cup caster sugar; 1 teaspoon vanilla essence; 2 eggs; 1 cup almond meal (ground almonds); 1/4 cup plain flour; 400g cherries, pitted; icing sugar mixture, to serve. Pastry: 11/4 cups plain flour; 1/3 cup icing sugar mixture; 1/4 cup almond meal (ground almonds); 125g butter, chilled, chopped; 1 egg yolk. Method: Make pastry. Process flour, icing sugar, almond meal and butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add egg yolk. Process until dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly-floured surface. Knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap. Re- frigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 24cm (base) round, fluted loose-based flan tin. Roll out pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper to form a 32cm circle. Line base and side of tin with pastry. Trim excess. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Place tin on a baking tray. Line pastry with baking paper. Fill with ceramic pie weights or uncooked rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights or rice and paper. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden. Cool. Reduce temperature to 160C/140C fan- forced. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add almond meal. Beat until just com- bined. Stir in flour. Spread mixture into pastry case. Arrange cherries over mixture. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden and firm. Cool in pan. Dust with icing sugar. Serve. For more recipes, grab the latest issue of Super Food Ideas, Australia's leading food magazine. Ask Kim I love cherries, but I'm not confident about selecting the right ones or using them in recipes. Can you help? Select cherries with firm, glossy skins and stems intact (attached stems maintain fruit freshness). Avoid soft, dull or bruised fruit with brittle stems. Small, hard cherries will lack juice and taste. Cherries are highly perishable and are best eaten within two or three days of purchase. Store cherries unwashed and loosely packed in a plastic bag or shallow bowl (to minimise bruising) in the refriger- ator and wash just before eating. Cherries are ideal for salads, tarts, and pies or as an accompaniment to white meats such as chicken or pork, but need to be pitted before cooking. Use a cherry pitter, or slit the side of the cherry and remove the stone. If fresh cherries are unavailable you can often use canned stoneless black cherries or frozen cherries, which are available at most supermarkets. Kim Coverdale is food editor at Super Food Ideas.
