Cherry almond tartelettes

Cherry season is almost over and I realized that I haven´t made anything with cherries. So I was waiting and waiting until these five and half cherries is finally ripe and suddenly they´re too ripe, half of them fell off the tree, so bye-bye my plans. Originally I wanted to make two desserts using cherries, but I had enough of them for only one dessert. Thus no Black forest cake, hopefully I´ll make it next year. One way or another, I wasn´t missing only cherries but also kirsch, which was used up quicker than expected. In the end, cherry almond tartelettes became a winner. Tartelettes, small tarts, were created out of original tart because of shortage of cherries. And you really don´t need a big amount of cherries, they´re only on the top and they´re even halved. Tartelettes are actually the variant of Italian dessert frangipani, the base of which is almonds. Cream filling with almonds in these tartelettes is placed on crunchy kneaded dough and cherry on the top are literally sweet cherries.
