This tart is topped with baked crumbs and flavoured with Kirschwasser, a cherry-flavoured liqueur. Instead of kirschwasser you could try using framboise, a raspberry-flavoured liqueur.
I am going to give this a better rating cuz I could tell it WOULD have been great had I not slaughtered it. Part of the reason I messed up though was my shopping list did not have some of the detail needed. Because of this and for other reasons - I made some substitutions. I also was not thinking and when the recipe called for preserves in the pot - I was (stupid me) thinking rasberries...not the jam! DUH! ok..but despite some mashed rasberries that I layered with (and by the way - I think I liked that boo boo cuz it did not affect it much and then I was not jamming the topping into the rasberries so that it would stay put - it layered nicely. (I will do that again (break up the rasberries a bit) The other thing to consider is the cost of rasberries of that amount - I paid $15.00 for my rasberries at 2.99 a container that had a little over a cup. Marie Calanders would have been less expensive!!! This is also a lot of work. But anyway..in the end - I could read through the lines and think..." This WOULD have been delicious but pricey! I also used Cherry extract instead of the kirshwasser - I have no idea how different that made it - but like I said the flavor was good - so that item worked for me. Good luck...I will probably try it again! - 25 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
