1 big egg yolk
2-3 tbsp. ice water

2. Place the cherries into the tarts, pour over the filling. Put over almond flakes.
3. Bake for 25-30 min till golden.

P.S. Well, as you can see mine are not as cute, as I could not get fresh cherries but I promise you they are divine, so therefore I made some more next day with fresh blackberries. See the other picture. Try! You will love them!!

Enjoy, K.
