Valentine Cherry Brownies

Instead of giving your sweetheart boxed chocolates, present your Valentine with this dessert. For an even more dramatic presentation, flambé this dessert. Just pour ¼ cup cognac over the top of each serving and flambé! Your sweetheart will love it. What could mean more than this homemade Valentine?"


2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 t. almond extract
2 T. Amaretto
4 large eggs
¾ c. cocoa
1 cup flour
½ t. baking powder
¼ t. salt
1 - 21 oz. can cherry pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in microwave (about 2 minutes). Pour butter in a bowl of a Cuisinart Stand Mixer. Cream in sugar, vanilla, almond extract, and Amaretto. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and salt. Mix only until dry ingredients are incorporated. Place 1 can cherry pie filling in Cuisinart SmartPower Premier 600-Watt Blender and process until almost pureed. (Some cherry chunks are acceptable.) Fold into cake batter.

Spray a 9” x 9”pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into pan.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until cakes pull away from side and wooden cake tester comes out clean.

Serving suggestion: Serve warm with vanilla ice cream topped with more cherry pie filling.
