- 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
- 2 Tbs. light brown sugar
- 2 lbs. fat, juicy sweet cherries, pitted (can use frozen)
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 8 oz. top-quality vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 C. toasted chopped pecans
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar, stir, and then add the cherries and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cherries are tender and hot through, about 3-5 minutes. Add the lemon juice, stir, and then remove from the heat. Divide the cherries among 6 shallow dishes, and serve with vanilla ice cream. Top with pecans.
