Cherry-Amaretto Streusel Tart


Cherries are in peak season and if you are a fan of a fruit dessert, this is a great choice!  The amaretto is a perfect complement to the cherries and the almond streusel adds just the right amount of texture.  Invest in a cherry pitter to make the pitting of the cherries easier.  Don’t forget to heap on a large scoop of vanilla ice-cream to complete this summer dessert.
