Hi, So I have never made one actually, but I saw the recipe in
Cook's Illustrated and want to try it ~ sounds marvelous !!
Although of course I don't have fresh cherries, I do have plums
The only thing is, I don't have the cognac that the recipe calls for
(cherries = amaretto, plums = cognac with this recipe)
I don't happen to think my bar is tooo poorly stocked, but
I don't have a cognac on hand, and really I am hoping I don't have to go out
and buy some, but of course, if I must, then I must....
Has anyone tried this particular recipe, and can the cognac be
substituted for something else and work just as well ?
