This recipe is GREAT! It is fast, easy and tastes like a million bucks. I've given it to all my friends and use it each time I have someone new to dinner. I cut down on the amount of sugar and allspice just a tad as I wanted to taste the cherries and liqueurs. Also used a choice of vanilla and/or chocolate ice creams!
