A simple butter cookie mixed with the flavors of Cherries Jubilee.

Several years ago, we went on a cruise. They had Cherries Jubilee on the menu one night, and I think it was really our first encounter with this well-known dessert. My husband fell instantly in love with it, which is a rare thing for him. I’ve thought about making it at home a few times, but I’m a little intimidated by the whole en flambé thing. I recently decided I could make a Cherries Jubilee cookie, and feel better about the whole situation.
Cherries Jubilee itself is not that complicated. It’s just cherries, cooked in a simple syrup and poured over vanilla ice cream. It’s totally my husband’s kind of dessert. (It doesn’t have nearly enough chocolate in it for my taste!) I set about recreating the Cherries Jubilee flavor, without the alcohol or fire.
