Cherry Almond Torte

Couple of notes

Totally forgot to add the egg to the crust. Was fine, except I am thinking the egg would have made the dough a teensy bit easier to handle?

Couldn't easily find the sour cherries, so I went with sweet, and just cut back on the sugar. Also, seemed totally fine.
