Preparation

To Make the Crust:

  1. Combine all the ingredients, then set aside in the fridge.

To Make the Filling:

  1. In a medium-sized pot, bring the milk to a boil. Add the white rice, sugar, raisins, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla and let it simmer while covered for about 30 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  3. Oil a tart form. Either roll out the dough on a floured working space or distribute it evenly with your fingertips in your tart form. With a fork, stab a few holes in the dough.
  4. When the rice is soft and soaked up all of the liquid, it is done. Rinse the sour cherries and stir them in the rice pudding.
  5. Evenly spread the filling on your base, then drizzle with the cream.
  6. Bake the tart for about 45 minutes. It is done when the top is golden brown and starting to get crispy.
  7. Let it cool off completely before serving.
