Lay a circle of dough in the bottom of the ring. Don't worry if it doesn't go right to the edge, as it will swell during baking.

Push the cherries into the top of the galette through the craquelin, distributing them evenly.

Tip: Push your finger through the craquelin into the dough with a sharp, precise prod, then stick the cherry into the hole you have made.

Stage 14 - 40 min.

Bake for about 40 minutes.

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
Remarks
For an interesting variation: replace half the flour in the craquelin with ground hazelnuts. This gives a more definite hazelnut flavour and a subtler crust.

If you don't have hazelnut cream, just use almond cream or frangipane instead.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
