Crust: 6 Tbsp Sugar ¾ cup Butter, cubed 1¾ cup Flour, sifted Pinch Salt ½ tsp Vanilla extract 1 ea Egg
Combine the sugar, butter, flour, salt, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl and work the dough until it resembles a crumble. Add the egg and mix until uniform dough is formed. Chill for 30 minutes. Roll out to 1/5 inch thick and line an 8" pie shell (if this is too much trouble you can easily buy one at your local grocery store).
Filling: 6½ Tbsp Butter ¾ cup Powdered sugar 1 cup Almond, finely ground ½ tsp Almond extract 2 ea Egg
Cream the butter, sugar, almond, almond extract and add the egg one at a time. Mix well. Fill the tart shell with this mixture ¾ to the top of the pie.
Top the pie with an even layer of the cherries and sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes for the 8" tart, 25 minutes for the smaller tarts. Serve warm or chilled.
