  • 2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • 2 tablespoons aged balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1.5 cups ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 sheet puff pastry


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook the puff pastry according to the package directions, about 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned. Allow it to cool completely.
  • Macerate the cherries in the balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey for about 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese and 2 tablespoons honey until well blended. Spread the ricotta mixture onto the puff pastry being careful not to break up the pastry crust. Top with the marinated cherries and drizzle with honey before serving.
