22 Jul Cherry Tarts

We have two cherry trees in our backyard and I have been loving the fresh cherries. Growing up, I ate a lot of cherry pie. It was my dad’s favorite dessert and he requested it often. I wanted to make a gluten, vegan cherry pie, but decided to try tarts instead since they make individual servings.
