Cherries Jubilee Ice Cream Parfaits
- 1 (12-ounce) bag frozen cherries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 16 chocolate cream cookies, broken into pieces
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries, sugar, and orange juice. Bring it to a simmer. In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water to make a slurry. Stir the slurry into the cherry mixture and simmer until it thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
In parfait glasses, put a small scoop of ice cream, a spoonful or 2 of the cherry mixture, and some of the cookie pieces. Repeat 2 to 3 times to fill up the glass. Serve immediately.
