The Cost Of Love Banning Of Valentines Day And Cherry Tarts

The Cost Of Love Banning Of Valentines Day And Cherry Tarts

A dozen long-stemmed roses on Valentine’s Day can run as much as $140. Ad to that a card $5.25. A box of Godiva chocolates $50.00. A night out can run up to $150.00. Spending on Valentine’s Day averages $136.57.

In Muslim countries Valentine’s Day is banned. A High Court has passed rulings, saying it was against Islamic teachings. I think it’s because they do not honor women. The  ban also goes on to say “celebration of this day in public places, spread love in fact, immorality, nudity and indecency is being promoted which is against the Islamic culture.” With the current climate could this happen here?

Cherry Tart

Gifts from the hearth and heart are always the best. Here is a recipe for Cherry Tarts.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

Use your favorite pie dough. Trader Joe’s pie dough is light, flaky. One sheet will make 4 heart pies. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Cut out shapes with heart shape cookie cutter.

Cherry Tart

Pit and chop about a handful of fresh sweet cherries. If frozen a 16oz bag is needed per sheet.

Sprinkle and toss the cherries with about 1 TBSP of sugar.

Spoon on some fresh ricotta cheese, then spoon on the cherries. Lay down the top dough, seal to press with a fork.

Brush the top with melted butter.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until mini hearts are golden brown. The baking time will largely depend on the thickness of your pastry dough and your oven. Just keep close watch.

Cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Happy Valentine’s Day from T2C
