It only takes about ahhh 15 minutes to prepare...
- 2 (15-ounce) cans whole Bing cherries in juice, drained and juice reserved
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup kirsch or cognac, warmed
- 2 pints vanilla ice cream (Haagen Das if you can afford it!)
In a small dish, combine a little cherry juice with sugar and cornstarch. In a skillet, heat juice from cherries over moderate heat. Add cornstarch mixture. When juice thickens, add cherries to warm through. Pour in warmed liqueur, then flame the pan to burn off alcohol. Remove cherries from heat. Scoop vanilla ice cream into large cocktail glasses or dessert dishes and spoon cherries down over ice cream.
See, I told you it was simple...Enjoy! Eat well my friends!
