      Would you believe I made 5 batches of this recipe already? I brought the first two batches to the office and we had it with Chocolate Ice Cream (Vanilla was sold out) and some purchased crepes. Delish!! This is a keeper. I'm thinking of making these for Christmas. It didn't thicken very much but we still love it!

      I made this as a sauce for salmon. It was excellent on the fish and after we finished eating my friend said, "this would be so good on vanilla ice cream".... It's a pretty versatile sauce!

      Everyone is right, this is really REALLY easy. I made this with Splenda instead of sugar and fresh Bing Cherries. It was a little sweet, so I think I'd reduce the sugar next time. The brandy flavor isn't overwhelming, which is nice for somethings. For others, I'd like a stronger brandy flavor. I might add a little more brandy at the end. It does thicken as it sits, so don't get impatient.
