Cherries Jubilee with Vanilla Ice Cream

Cherries Jubilee on Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

Impress your guests with warm Cherries Jubilee served over vanilla ice cream! Flambeing rum caramelizes the sugars and deepens the flavors of the cherries.

The inspiration for this recipe comes from my 10-year old self’s favorite book series, the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. In the first book, Dealing with Dragons, the main heroine, named Cimorene, tasks herself with making desert for a dinner party of six dragons!

Cimorene only knows how to make two desserts: chocolate mousse and cherries jubilee. Ultimately, Cimorene decides to make chocolate mouse, and she spends the whole day preparing enormous buckets of dragon-sized servings of it!

That scene left such an impression on me, and I haven’t forgotten it decades later!

I have always been intrigued by cherries jubilee, and until now, I never had it! I was inspired to finally make it when I saw one of my fellow blogger friends, Erin, make a Cherry Skillet Cake recipe. When she described her recipe as “cherries jubilee”, I knew I finally had to make the real deal!

Pan of Mini Raspberry Lemon Cheesecakes

Lemon lovers will beg you to bring these (almost no bake) tart, sweet, rich, and creamy mini raspberry lemon cheesecakes to your next gathering!

This recipe is adapted from Cook’s Country‘s recipe for Lemon Icebox Cheesecake. It is packed full of lemon flavor with the right balance of tart and sweet.

The original recipe makes one 9″ cheesecake, but I adapted the recipe to make mini cheesecakes that can be easily shared and taken to potlucks or other gatherings. How pretty would these look at a 4th of July celebration picnic or barbecue?

The only baking required for this recipe is to set the lemon-flavored crust. The mini raspberry lemon cheesecakes get their fluffy and creamy texture from a gelatin based lemon cream cheese filling that sets up as it chills in the fridge. To really make these cheesecakes special, top the cheesecakes with a stunning swirl of lemon curd and raspberry preserves.
