  • 2 cups cherries, washed and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoons cornstarch optional, but will give you thicker roasted cherries


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
    Combine the cherries, sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Mix well until the cherries are well coated and everything is mixed in.
    Place cherries on the baking sheet, spread.
    Bake for about 7-15 minutes. The cherries will soften and release their juices. If you have used the cornstarch, they will be slightly thick.
    Remove from oven and allow to cool.
    Use as desired.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
