Double Cherry Sundae

Yield Makes 8 servings
Flavor is what makes Bing cherries exceptional. If they have a flaw, it would be the pit. And if pitting cherries has kept you from using them in desserts like this lavish sundae, take heart. With a little help, it's an easier, speedier task than you might suppose.Notes: If making sauce ahead, cool, cover, and chill up to a week. To use, stir over very low heat until smooth.

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon kirsch (cherry liqueur), optional
