What to do…

  • Combine the cherries and honey in a medium saucepan and cook it over medium heat until hot and bubbly. Pour in the whiskey and stir to combine, then let it cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the butter until it melts.


  • Mix together the lemon juice with the cornstarch, then pour it in. Continue cooking for 2-3 minute until thicker. Add the almond extract.
  • Pour into a bowl and allow to cool to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours, or until chilled.
  • Crush the graham crackers and spoon into the bottom of your favorite wine glasses.


  • Add cream cheese and sweetened condensed to bowl and whisk them together until fluffy.
  • Fill a pastry bag or zipper bag with the filing. Snip off the end and pipe a big helping over the crumbs in each of the glasses.
  • Top with a big spoonful of the cherry topping.
  • Top with sliced almonds.


(Note: Mix 2 tablespoons melted butter into the crumbs if you’d like them to be a little more moist.)
(Note: 1 package of cream cheese makes for a more pudding-like texture; 2 packages makes for a thicker texture.)
