My Birthday cherry pancakes

today is my 26th b-day and i love having cherry pancakes with whipped cream! my husband and i went to cracker barrel last year and i had these. i thought i would make it myself this time.

Cherry sauce for pancakes

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup water
2 cups frozen unsweetened tart cherries, thawed
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional

Combine sugar and cornstarch; mix well.

Put water in a medium saucepan; stir in sugar mixture.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

Continue to cook, stirring, until thick and clear.

Reduce heat.

Stir in cherries, almond extract and cinnamon.

Heat until cherries are hot.

Serve over pancakes.

Note: 1 (16-ounce) can unsweetened tart cherries, well drained, can be substituted for frozen tart cherries. Use the juice from cherries in place of water.

my b-day dress also has cherries on it!
