Cherry Pistachio Tart!

These Cherry Pistachio Tarts are amazing and my husbands favorite dessert. I love the crisp crumble crust with the soft cherry center. The addition of the pistachios adds amazing texture and completely brings all the flavors together in this tart. I love to serve these at holidays and get togethers, they are always a big hit!

-1/4 teaspoon salt

-1/2 teaspoon baking soda

-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
