1¼ cups Buttermilk
1/3 cup Almond Flour
2 tbsp. All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tsp. Fresh Ginger, finely grated

Grease a 9-inch pie pan with unsalted butter. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp. of the sugar and arrange cherries in a single layer in the pan. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, remaining sugar. Almond flour, all-purpose flour, vanilla, ginger and salt until smooth. Pour mixture evenly over the cherries. Place dish in a pre-heated 375-degree oven for 50 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and set in the center. Test with a toothpick, if it comes out clean it is done. Cool slightly, dust with the powdered sugar and serve warm.
