How to make it

  • Combine cherries and brandy in a saucepan and place over high heat and burn off the alcohol for about 1 minute.
  • Add the sugar and reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Lightly squish the cherries once with a fork and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • Drain the cherries out and allow to chill.
  • Continue to cook the liquid until slightly thicker and place in fridge to chill as well.
  • Lightly cook the almond flakes in a dry pan over med-high heat (be sure to toss the almond flakes continually as they will easily burn).
  • Once slightly browned remove them from the pan immediately and spread out on a plate to cool.
  • Once all the ingredients are cool, place a small layer of mascarpone in each glass (making the mascarpone layers too thick will make the dessert a little too rich).
  • Layer some cherries onto that.
  • Then sprinkle some almonds onto that.
  • Another layer of mascarpone and so on and so forth until the top of the glass is almost reached, the last layer should be cherries.
  • Just prior to serving pour a little of the reserved cherry juice on top and garnish with the last of the almonds.
