    Cookgirl's Note:

    Based on a recipe from The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook. I ended up with a surplus of bing cherries recently and found this recipe online. I did not have either cherry brandy or the Banyuls Rimage wine on hand, rather substituted an Oregon-distilled pear brandy (although a suitable red wine will work). Serving suggestions: over ice cream, custard/flan, pound or sponge cake, plain yogurt (Greek yogurt) or even a simple slice of mild goat cheese. For kicks, I threw in a few Rainier cherries to test how they would taste roasted. Five ingredients-very easy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Note from the website: 'The cherries are roasted whole but can be pitted before serving, which is recommended if you are feeding those too young or too old to deal with the pits. (Don't pit them beforehand, or you'll release too many juices.)' However, CG stresses and highly recommends not serving the dessert to children. Furthermore, I would treat this dessert as more appropriate for adults and serve *only* to adults to avoid any problems and an emergency visit to the dentist. I can't imagine having to pit these *after* they've roasted. My two cents.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 450°.
    3. 3
      Place the whole cherries in a small roasting pan (I used an 8-inch cast iron skillet) sprinkle on the sugar, salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Place pan or skillet in the oven and roast until the cherries start to release their juices and the sugar melts and begins to caramelize. This will take about 10 minutes but watch the cherries very carefully, as the sugar may start to burn.
    5. 5
      Remove from the oven, pour the brandy over and return for another 5 minutes and roast until the juices start to bubble up.
    6. 6
      Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving. Can be cooled completely and reheated gently on the stove top. (If you're removing the pits, do this before reheating.).
    7. 7
      Yield is estimated.

      i used this recipe with a few changes. i used kosher salt and regular pepper. also, without brandy at home i used half amaretto, half pomegranate liqueur.

      i was really wary of burning, and kept them in for a total of 15 minutes exactly. they probably could have stayed in a little longer and didn't get really dark, but were still very tasty.

      i made a warm vanilla sauce to pour over the top of the finished cherries.
