  1. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees F/190 degrees C. Butter a sheet of parchment paper and sprinkle it with brown sugar. Place an oval pastry ring (see note #1) on parchment.
  2. Using a rolling pin, roll the thawed still cold puff pastry to 1/5-inch/5 mm thick. Using hands, bring the pastry over the pastry ring. Gently press it into the mold. Cut off any excess pastry with a sharp knife. Prick the bottom with a fork. Refrigerate while making the filling cream.
  3. To make the filling, mix eggs, cream, ground almonds, sugar, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Pour the preparation on the tart shell and divide the pitted cherries over it. Sprinkle with slivered almonds. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let it cool, remove the tart from the ring/mold, and cut it into pieces. 
  4. Serve it plain or sprinkled with icing sugar. Or accompany it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


  1. Use one of the authentic pastry rings (perforated or non-perforated) 0.75-inch/about 2 cm high, or make it yourself (the instruction is in the FAQ section of the post). This oval pastry ring equals 8-inch/20 cm round pastry ring.
  2. Make sure that the puff pastry is thawed but cold. If it becomes warm and soft, bring it to the freezer for 5 minutes. 
  3. Use a rolling pin to roll the puff pastry out: don't stretch the dough.
  4. Replace fresh cherries with the frozen ones: don't thaw them.
