Easy Cherries Jubilee

Made  times

"Reach for cans: In a large skillet, heat canned tart cherries and cherry pie filling with frozen apple juice concentrate and some brandy. Add a bit more brandy (for a really good show, dim the lights on the way to the table) and ignite with a long wooden match. Voila -- Easy Cherries Jubilee."

Very quick and easy but was a bit runny. Next time I will add a little cornstartch to thicken it up.
