Hot Cherry Pie Cocktail

Cherry, vanilla and amaretto give this cocktail all the flavors of a hot-from-the-oven cherry pie. The whipped cream and pie crust crumble make it as pretty as it is tasty.

To create this scrumptious treat, heat the cherry juice in a small saucepan over medium heat or in the microwave. Then, pour the heated cherry juice into a small cup, and add the liquors. Stir gently to combine. Finally, top with whipped cream, pie crust crumble, and a maraschino cherry. Tip: to make the pie crust crumble, roll pie dough into a thin sheet (about 1/8” thick). Place the rolled dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake at 425˚F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on the baking sheet, and then break into small pieces
