  • Preheat oven to 180° C (350° F).
  • In a saucepan, heat the cream. Add the cheese and mix well, until completely melted. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs together with 180 ml (3/4 cup) of sugar, until it takes a very light and foamy texture (about 8 minutes).
  • Alternating with the cream and melted cheese mix, gradually add the almond powder and cornstarch to the eggs. Add 60 ml (1/4 cup) of melted butter and mix well.
  • Coat 4 individual gratin cups with butter and sugar.
  • Pour the mixture into the cups until they are three-quarters full.
  • Add Morello cherries on top of the mixture in each cup.
  • Bake about 8 minutes.
  • Top with slivered almonds and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
  • Cook another 4 minutes, until the clafouti pastries turn golden.
  • The pastries are cooked when a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • *Small cherries sold in glass jars in most grocery stores.
