Cherries Jubliee

Cherries Jubliee

Last night I made Cherries Jubliee and it was very, very good! It only took around 10 minutes to make also! Here is the recipe:
First I stirred a can of cherry pie filling into a pan and placed it over the heat and waited until it became warm. In a separate pan I warmed up 1/4 cup of Bourbon. Then, I poured the liquor over the almost boiling cherry pie filling and lit it on fire. Finally, I served the cherries jubliee over vanilla ice cream!
