Layers of buttery, flaky laminated pastry are swirled around a lightly spiced, pleasantly gooey cherry compote, then brushed with orange liqueur and sprinkled with pulverized pistachios after baking. For an alcohol-free alternative, swap out the liqueur for a mixture of honey and fresh orange juice.

Tartine Tip
Keep moisture content of fillings and toppings to a minimum. For example, squeeze any moisture out of cooked vegetables and cook fresh fruit down to a jammy consistency. Too much liquid can cause uneven proofing and baking. Make your fillings ahead of time so they're ready to use when the dough is prepared.
