4½ cups Ontario Pitted Red Tart Cherries with some juice (1.125 L)
¼ cup cornstarch (60 mL)

Directions

Sauce:
  1. Scoop cherries from the pail using a large spoon or measuring cup, trying to fill it with as many cherries as possible. Some liquid will also be captured, which is fine. Set aside ¼ cup juice.

  4. Keep remining sauce in covered container in the fridge and enjoy within 3 days.

Assembly:

  1. Carefully fill the bottom half of each tart shell with chocolate hazelnut spread.
  2. Top with Ontario Red Tart cherry topping
