Brandied Cherry Sauce

Black sweet cherries-sometimes called Bing cherries-are always a great treat, but when spiked with cherry brandy for this topping, they are nearly irresistible.

Serves 8

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cranberry juice cocktail, or other berry juice drink
  • 2 tablespoon kirsch, or other cherry-flavored brandy (see Substitution Tip)
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups pitted sweet cherries, (fresh or 1 pound frozen, thawed), quartered
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, or to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk sugar and cornstarch in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Add juice, brandy and cinnamon; whisk until well blended. Stir in cherries. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the mixture boils and thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in lemon juice. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
