Double Cherry Sundae

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.
