My favorite dessert at a restaurant my mom and I used to like to go to when I was in high school -- they would prepare this at the table, individually for each person, so the recipe as we wrote it down one day is for one serving:
Vanilla Ice Cream with Flambé Cherries
Fry up (ideally in a copper pan if you have one) almond flakes (ca. 1 tablespoon) with enough sugar to lightly caramelize. Add 1 teaspoon of butter, 1 cup of orange juice and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Mix and briefly let sizzle. Add 1 cup of cherries (preserved, but without their juice), mix again and let simmer (5 minutes max). Douse with Grand Marnier or rum and set aflame; when the flames have burned off, add a dash of maraschino or amaretto. Pour over vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
