Sour Cherry Jam Tart
The Sour Cherry Jam goes so nice with the brown sugar short bread crust. I was making some Granola and kept out 1 Cupful of the yet to be cooked Granola, for this recipe. I just sprinkled it on top of the tart before baking. I really liked it. In this Granola I put cranberries and almonds. You can add anything you like. Or for that matter you can add any Jam you like. I have never used Sour Cherry Jam before, I believe it was made just for this tart. You will to. Sour and sweet. Just like me.
