  • Pour the dark cherries and their syrup into a heavy sauce pan. Add the cornstarch.
  • Turn your stove on medium low. Gently stir to break up the lumps of cornstarch.
  • Once the cornstarch lumps are dissolved turn the heat up to medium.
  • Bring cherries to a gentle boil, about ten minutes. Stir until thickened.
  • Once the filling has thickened remove the pot from the heat.
  • Gently stir in the vanilla extract, lime zest and juice.
  • Allow the cherry filling cool to room temperature before using as a pie or tart filling. Once the topping is room temp then you can fill your tart or pie crust.
  • Bake tart or pie for 45-50 minutes until filling is bubbling and tart or pie crust is a golden brown.
  • Cool on a cooling rack.
  • Serve with whipped cream, ice cream.or sweetened creme fraiche
