DIRECTIONS

  • Cut cherries in half and pit them, working over a bowl to catch the juices.
  • Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Continue boiling, without stirring, until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of brandy and remove from the heat.
  • Set aside for at least 5 minutes to cool slightly and allow the flavors to meld.
  • Spoon the warm cherries and sauce over the ice cream.
