It would have to be a dessert since I love sweets so much… After much consideration, I came up with Cherries Jubilee… Can combine fruit with ice cream… This combination with a little cognac and flame is hot…
- 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
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.
