I went back to Julia this month and made the French version of cherries jubilee. The most time-consuming portion involved removing the stems and pits from the fresh cherries. Making the crust, custard, and filling, and assembling the dish weren't too bad. I made this dessert from start to finish in one afternoon--much faster than the typical two days these recipe challenges have been taking lately.
This challenge seemed to go smoothly, and I was excited...

I have no idea what I did wrong. Maybe I warmed to cognac too much and there was no alcohol left to burn?
To drown my sorrows, I piled on the vanilla ice cream, which is a must for any warm dessert.
