The basic aspect of this recipe is great. It is straight up simple and quick and makes an ice cream that's not too rich and not too sweet. To my mind though, to make it truly "vanilla cherry", it needs only a tiny drop of almond extract, and the cherries should be added in near the end of processing. The almond essence essentially wiped out the vanilla, and my very ripe fresh cherries were a little too well blended in. It did have a great cherry-almond flavor, and I would make it again if I wanted a strictly cherry ice cream, but I'd also add in some chocolate chunks to give it some more interest and texture.
