This was very good over pound cake and vanilla ice cream. i had to use canned cherries, as ripe ones are unavailable this time of year, and i do think this would be better with fresh- i will make this again this summer when cherries are in season. The kids thought the brandy was a bit strong for their taste, but the adults approved.

  2. Lower heat and let cook until cherries soften up, approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, remove cinnamon sticks, and add brandy and remaining 1 cup berries.
  4. Serve warm or at room temperature over very hard vanilla ice cream, or any other type of dessert you prefer.
