VEGAN CHRISTMAS CHERRY TART
This Vegan Christmas Cherry Tart is gluten free, dairy free, nut free and vegan. It is the perfect dessert to serve because it ticks most of the allergy friendly boxes and tastes great! Now this custard tart can be eaten at room temperature but may I suggest for our hot summer christmas that you make this a day or two before and serve it cold. It will knock your socks off! Merry Christmas to you all and have a beautiful and festive week ahead. Enjoy x

Prepare the pastry. Place the flour, butter and sugar in a bowl and using fingers rub the flour until it resembles crumbs. Gradually add the iced water and using a knife or dough blender combine well till it forms a smooth dough. Knead gently for a minute and then wrap in cling wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
