- 2 tbsp Amaretto
- 500ml double cream
- juice of 2-3 lemons
- grated zest of 2 lemons

- Save a few cherries for decoration, Halve and stone remainder. Heat with 25g of the sugar until sugar is dissolved and the juices run. Add the Amaretto and cook until liquid is reduced and syrupy. Allow to cool.
- Add cream to remaining sugar and slowly bring to the boil. Stir constantly to dissolve. Boil for 3 minutes continuing to stir.
