Hearts and Cherries
8 inches flour tortillas
Butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray
tablespoons sugar
15 1/2 ounce can pitted dark sweet cherries, well drained
cup black cherry spreadable fruit
cup (1/2 of a pint) butter-pecan or butter-brickle ice cream (or other desired flavor)
cup whipping cream, whipped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges. Fold each wedge in half lengthwise; trim top edge with scissors to form a heart shape.
  2. Open hearts and place them close together on an ungreased baking sheet. Coat hearts lightly with cooking spray; sprinkle with a mixture of sugar and cocoa powder. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. For cherry sauce, combine drained cherries and spreadable fruit in a small saucepan or in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat through over low heat or in a microwave oven on 100 percent power (high) for about 1 minute.
  4. To serve, place one tortilla heart on each of 4 dessert plates. Spoon some cherry sauce on top. Top with several small scoops of ice cream, then with another tortilla heart, and a dollop of whipped cream. Cover with a third heart. Pass remaining sauce. Makes 4 servings.
