Kirsch is a fruit brandy made with sweet cherries, but the brandy in your liquor cabinet will work just fine. This sauce is also delicious over an ice-cream sundae. Try it on pancakes and waffles too.


How to Make It

Stir together cherries, sugar, cold water, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, 12 to 15 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in Kirsch or brandy, vanilla, and salt. Cool completely (about 1 hour).
