RED RUSTIC TART

Ingredients
• 3 large apples such as Jonathan or Macintosh, peeled, thinly sliced (4 cups)
• 5 tablespoons sugar, divided
• 1-1/4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
• 1 cup dried tart cherries
• 1 refrigerated rolled pastry for a 9-inch pie (1/2 of a 15 ounce package)
• 1 tablespoon butter

 
Directions
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine apples, 4 tablespoons of the sugar and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon in a large bowl; toss well. Stir in cherries. Let stand 10 minutes; tossing once.

Line a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Unroll pastry onto pan. Mound apple mixture over center of pastry leaving a 3-inch border around edges. Fold up edges of pastry over apple mixture leaving a 4-inch opening in center. Gently fold and press pastry onto apple mixture. Cut butter into small pieces and arrange over apple mixture.

Combine remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle over tart. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and apples are tender. Let stand 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 6 servings.

Tip: for a festive glaze, combine 1/2 cup tart cherry juice and 2 tablespoons honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer gently 6 to 8 minutes or until slightly thickened and reduced to about 1/4 cup. Cool to room temperature (glaze will thicken upon standing. Drizzle over tart just before serving.

Cherries, commonly enjoyed year-round as dried and frozen cherries and cherry juice, can add antioxidant benefits, rich RED color and sweet-tart taste to holiday fare. In fact, cherries’ RED color comes from powerful antioxidant compounds called anthocyanins that studies suggest may reduce inflammation and risk factors for heart disease.
