Sift dry ingredients together; rub in shortening very lightly with finger tips. Add water slowly, just enough to make a stiff dough; roll out very thin on a floured board and line patty pans, being very careful to have pastry come well over the edges of the pans Bake in oven at 400/o, about 12 to 15 minutes. Fill with cherries. Cover with hot syrup made as follows.
Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup of cherries to 1 cup boiling water; bring to a boil and strain. Add 1 tablespoon cornstarch which has been mixed with a little cold water. Cook over hot fire for 1 minute or two, stirring constantly; then cook very gently until thick. Pour immediately over cherries. Serve tarts either hot or cold. Other fruits can be used in place of the cherries.
