    To make filling: Use electric beaters to beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in vanilla essence. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition. Fold in almond meal and flour. Spread into the pastry case. Arrange cherries over the filling, pressing in slightly. Bake for 30 mins, or until set and golden brown. Cool, dust with icing sugar and cut into slices. Serve with cream, if desired.
