Servings: 12


  • 115 gram all purpose flour
  • 60 gram unsalted butter chilled
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4-5 drops water
  • 1/2 cup cherry pie filling
  • 12 chocolate truffles
  • whipped cream to serve


  • I used a melon scooper to make chocolate truffles from leftover chilled ganache & quickly rolled them in cocoa. I placed them in an airtight container on a parchment sheet & refrigerated till further use.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 C. Lightly grease the tart moulds.
  • Mix flour & baking powder together.
  • Add the butter & rub the flour & butter together using fingertips to create a dough resembling breadcrumbs.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal parts & line the tart moulds.
  • Place one truffle per tart mould. Then top it with 2 tsp of cherry pie filling.
  • Bake for 15 mins or till done. Remove from oven
  • Allow to cool completely on wire rack in the moulds. Do not de-mould when hot as you can scald yourself.
