Heavenly! I made this over pancakes for breakfast yesterday and it's officially my new favorite pancake topping! I used cherry pie filling for the fruit, but still added some orange juice to achieve a nice, syrup texture and increase the volume a touch. The taste was out of this world-I loved how the orange juice and zest enhanced the scrumptious cherries. I also really appreciated that it never tasted too sweet for breakfast; it never turned it into a dessert. What a fantastic recipe! Thank you very much!
