Serves 4

Serve a quick version of cherries jubilee by making a simply cherry sauce from cherry jelly, sweet cherries, and cherry brandy.

How to Make It

Melt jelly and butter in a medium skillet over medium heat until it begins to bubble. Add cherries and cook, stirring 2 to 3 minutes, until cherries are heated through and release their juices. Pour in brandy (if using), and simmer 1 minute longer. Place scoops of ice cream in cones. Pour hot cherries into serving bowls and invert cones on top of warm cherries. Serve immediately.

I made this for a dinner party where a couple kids were in attendance. Turned out the grown ups loved this dessert as much as the kids! The presentation is fun and everyone oohed and aahed while scraping their bowls clean. The only difference I made was adding a bit of cornstarch to thicken slightly. I'll be making this dessert all summer long!
