Bourbon Roasted Cherries
These Bourbon Roasted Cherries take only a few simple ingredients to make a sinfully delicious treat. Spoon over ice cream, cheesecake, oatmeal or just enjoy with a spoon! Serve at room temperature or warmed, these drunken cherries will keep in the refrigerator for two weeks.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 people
- 12 oz bag frozen pitted tart red or dark sweet cherries
- 3 tbsp packed light brown sugar
- 3 tbsp bourbon such as Maker's Mark
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Stir together cherries, brown sugar, bourbon, ginger, and salt in a small roasting pan or baking dish.
Roast for 25 minutes (stirring occasionally) or until the mixture smells very fragrant and cherries have released a lot of liquid.
Once the cherries have roasted, stir in the vanilla and let cool.
Transfer to a clean jar and refrigerate for up to two weeks. Serve at room temperature or warmed gently in a saucepan over low heat.
Tip: I went heavy-handed on the bourbon and scant with the ginger. Cinnamon would also be wonderful but don't skimp the vanilla.
