When executive editor Dennis Lewon comes back from a trip in Wyoming's Wind Rivers saying he's got a brand-new recipe, you'd best pay attention. Our staff gourmand is famous for his creative camp meals—easy to make, yet always infused with a certain flavorful je ne sais quoi. So now we bring you a world-exclusive dessert a la Dennis: Cherries Flambe. Yep, you even get to torch it.
Adjust ingredient measurements according to appetite and number of hikers.
Dried tart cherries
Heat cherries in a pan with a little sugar and water, until most of the water is absorbed. While they're warming up, spread cream cheese on tortillas. Add a couple of tablespoons of brandy to the cherries, heat for a few more seconds, then light the whole thing. Scoop cherries (careful, now) into tortillas with a spoon, wrap, and eat.
