Bing Cherry-Almond Creme Cheese Tart

Cherries are my fourth favorite fruit, next to apples, cranberries, and strawberries of course. So it is only natural that I tweaked recent Raspberry Almond Tart recipe and created this Bing Cherry-Almond Creme Cheese Tart. If the raspberry tart was A+mazing, this bing cherry cheesecakey version is out of this world. Don’t believe me? Just bake it for yourself and let me know.
