The crumble part of this cherry tart with streusel topping is mighty fine, if I do say myself. Of course, the cherries and pie crust holds its own too.
In other words, enjoy the tart. It’s good. 😉
I don’t know about you, but this time change has me exhausted. To be honest, I have other things going on that are wearing me out as well, but maybe, just maybe I will be able to catch up on sleep tonight. We are going to head back to church tonight but afterwards I plan on sleeping. Soundly. Soundly sleeping. This afternoon after church we had a soup and sandwich lunch and I brought my hamburger soup (except used tortellini’s). Delicious!

Cherry Tart With Streusel Topping
This dessert is simple and easy with a already made pie crust and and canned cherries. I usually try to use fresh when I can, but I couldn’t and let’s be real here, canned cherries are lovely. If you don’t have a tart pan, I do recommend getting one. You can find one here. Personally, I recommend the ones where the bottom is removable. It is very handy to have for a variety of desserts, such as this cherry tart and the white chocolate tart.
The streusel is a simple topping that makes plenty for this dessert recipe and enough to put into the freezer for later. Great for muffins like these peach yogurt muffins.
Easy cherry tart with a simple streusel topping. Great dessert recipe for guests or family.
- 1 can cherries
- 1 uncooked pie crust
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp water
Spread pie crust on the bottom and up the sides of lightly greased tart pan. **You don't have to bake this crust first, however if you want a more firm crust, poke holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork and bake at 375* for 7 minutes before adding cherries**
Mix together flour, sugar and cinnamon. Add water and sprinkle half over cherry filling. Reserve other half for future use
Bake at 375* for 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned
You can trim the edges of the crust off for a cleaner look or leave
Remove sides of tart pan and serve
