Cherries Jubilee

A perfect dessert for a celebration. This dessert has an old world charm to it that makes New Orleans so unique.

Cherries Jubilee

1 quart good vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 cups brandy
1/2 cup sugar
2 pints of fresh cherries, pitted

Scoop the ice cream into dessert cups and put into freezer. Remove bowls from freezer just before adding cherries.

Heat the brandy and sugar together in a heavy saucepan until sugar is completely dissolved. Add the pitted cherries and light the liquid with a match. Stir the cherries around in the flaming brandy (be careful!) until the fire burns itself out. Spoon mixture over ice cream and serve. Serves 6.
