  • To Make Dough: Cream the confectioners' sugar and 3 eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in the orange flower water. Add the butter or margarine, and mix well. Slowly add the cake flour, blending only to combine. Scrape onto a piece of plastic, and wrap. Chill for at least 1 hour. Roll dough out on a floured surface, and fit into a 11 inch tart pan. Make sure there are no holes in the dough.

  • Place the cherries into the tart shell. Fit as many as you can in in one layer.

  • To Make Filling: Using a mixer, cream together the 3 eggs, 1/4 cup flour, kirsch, cream, and white sugar until smooth. Pour over the cherries.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 40 minutes, or until the filling is just set. Allow to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This was a very good recipe. The filling might have been a little sweet but then I used sweet instead of tart cherries. Next time I use sweet cherries I'll cut the sugar a little. Very easy and impressive! Thank you! Read More

I had to make a couple of changes I used a combination of tart cherries and sweet cherries my cherry tree didn't give me enough tart cherries. I couldn't find orange flower water so I substituted vanilla extract. Funny story about the kirsch I purchased a bottle at the local store while getting out of the car with hands filled of grocery bags the bag with the kirsch fell yes my sidewalk had a good drink. I used a teaspoon of vanilla extract and that gave it a nice taste. Read More
