Place an 8.25-inch tart pan with a removable bottom on a half sheet pan. Lightly grease the tart pan. Set aside. Prepare the Chocolate Pâte Sablée as directed. Divide the dough in half. Wrap one portion in plastic wrap & save for another use. Roll the remaining pastry dough to a 1/4-inch thickness into a 10-inch circle between plastic wrap. Remove one piece of the wrap & invert the pastry over the prepared pan. Remove the second piece of wrap & discard. Fit the pastry into the pan, pressing into the fluted edges. Remove any excess dough. Pierce the crust bottom & sides all over with a fork. Freeze 30 minutes or chill 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper into the crust. Top with pie weights or dried beans. Bake on the lower rack 10 minutes. Remove the pie weights & bake an additional 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Portion 1 cup Dark Cherry Jam over the crust. Place on a half sheet pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until the filling is bubbly. Remove from the oven. Cool 1 hour. Chill 2 hours. Top with sweetened whipped cream. Garnish with Chocolate Pâte Sablée Pastry Leaves & fresh cherries.

makes 2 cups

3 lbs fresh sweet dark cherries, pitted
2/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup water

Bring all of the ingredients to a boil in a 4-quart saucepan over Medium heat. Reduce the heat to Medium-Low & cook, stirring occasionally, 45 minutes or until reduced & thickened. Do not walk away from the mixture during the cooking process. As it comes to a rolling boil, it will reach close to the top of the pan. Reduce the heat & allow it to cook down a bit. Stir the mixture constantly the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. Once the process is complete, expect the jam to cover 1/5 of the bottom of the pan. Remove the mixture from the heat. Transfer to a small bowl. Chill 2 hours or cover & chill up to 5 days.
