Easy Cherry Puff Pastry Tart


This is an Easy Cherry Puff Pastry Tart which you can whip up and bake in under an hour. I love cherries and this simple tart showcases them in all their glory. This is a must bake when cherries are in season – you will love it!

Start preparing the filling by combining cherries, sugar and water in a saucepan and cook for 10 minutes. Allow the cherry filling to cool down until it reaches room temperature. Spoon cherry filling on top of the puff pastry, Roll the edges to create a wall around the edges. Brush with egg and bake until pastry puffs and turns golden brown. I like to serve this tart with ice cream or whipped cream.

Family is very happy made it for my neices birthday and they loved it.


Not my personal favorite I think the strawberry poptarts were a lot tastier and not so bitter compared to this dessert.

Samira Weener

Decided to make my own puffy dough from this website too and it actually was perfect for this recipe as well.

Chanel Gungor

Too sweet and sticky not that good either cherries are sour and the sugar is very grainy.

Nellie Beckstrand

Drizzled caramel over the top my favorite recipe.

Nahla Mastropolo

Stuck to my teeth but was quite tasty though when it gets stuck it can be painful...

Maryjane Jedziniak

Estefania Possemato

So I thought that it didnt have much to it and decided to add a bit of milk, cinnamon and honey to the mix with the cherries, it made it way sweeter with a hint of cinnamon, delicious.

Ayleen Tapper

My kids are obssessed with how this turned out loved every single bite !

Amalia Bergert

Better than cherry pie and faster to make too super happy!

Antonella Renstrom

Good with some red wine on the side for a dessert on date night ;)

Gretchen Takaki

Good but next time I think cherries should be soaked in sugar and cinnamon not just sugar because they are already naturally sweet.

Akira Sarcona

Took me a bit to perfect this the first time I burnt it to a crispy and the 2nd time it was way too sticky. I managed to do good this time around but I kinda feel like there isn't much sweetness to it, it's more like adding cherry jam to some bread.

Bookmarking this to try it for later, very excited!! (- :

Replaced normal sugar with brown and made it into a pie instead of just a tart.


Simple & delicious tart!
