    Semifreddo
    1. In a medium size bowl whisk together sugar, egg yolks, water and Kirsch. Place bowl over a saucepan of simmering water making sure the bottom of the bowl does not come in contact with the water. Whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture reaches 170℉. Remove from heat and beat with an electric mixer until mixture is cool and thick. Set aside.
    2. Whip heavy cream until soft peaks form, gently fold in sugar&egg mixture until combined. Add cherries and fold gently to combine being careful not to deflate mixture.
    3. Line 10 6 ounce ramekins with plastic wrap and divide mixture evenly between the ramekins. Spoon a scant 1 1/2 Tbsp of liquid ganache onto mixture and swirl into mixture with a knife or teaspoon handle. Save remaining ganache for serving.
    4. Freeze individual ramekins for at least 8 hours. To serve, tug on plastic wrap to loosen from ramekin, invert onto serving plate and remove plastic wrap. Drizzle with ganache, serve immediately.
    Recipe Notes

    To help cool the egg yolk mixture, place the bowl on a bed of ice cubes while beating with an electric mixer.

    If tugging on plastic wrap does not loosen the semifreddo from the ramekin, set ramekin in a shallow dish of hot water for 10-20 seconds to loosen.
