For the cherry topping: Drain the cherries, however keep the cherry juice. In a small bowl, mix together the pudding powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 3-4 tablespoons of cherry juice. Bring 250ml of the cherry juice to a boil. Once boiling remove from the heat and stir in the pudding powder mixture. Return the pot to the stove, and while stirring constantly bring everything to a boil for 1 minute. Remove the pot from the heat. Stir the cherries into the warm pudding.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll the pastry dough out so that it is larger in diameter then a spring form pan (ca. 26cm diameter). Alternatively you can roll the dough between two sliced open freezer bags. Grease and lightly flour a spring form pan. Place the pastry dough into the spring form pan and form an edge. Now pour the cherry pudding mixture into the spring form pan.
