    1. 1
      Cut cherries in half and pit them, working over a bowl to catch the juices.
    2. 2
      Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a small heavy saucepan over medium high heat, bring the sugar and 1/4 cup of brandy to boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
    4. 4
      Continue boiling, without stirring, until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the cherries and their juices to the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the cherries are just heated through and slightly softened, about 1 minute.
    6. 6
      Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of brandy and remove from the heat.
    7. 7
      Set aside for at least 5 minutes to cool slightly and allow the flavors to meld.
    8. 8
      Spoon the warm cherries and sauce over the ice cream.

      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.
