Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle with flour.

Roll out the puff pastry onto the prepared baking tray and prick the pastry with a fork in a few spaces.

In a bowl, mix the garlic with the olive oil.

Brush the pastry with some garlic oil, leaving some aside.

Toss the cherries in the remaining garlic oil and spread across the pastry, taking care to leave a border around the edges.

Season with salt and pepper.

Place the tart in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, scatter the mozzarella across the top, and bake for a further 5 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Scatter over the fresh basil, cut, and serve immediately with a dollop of crème fraiche.
