Cherry Filling - Homemade for various desserts, rolls, ice cream topping, etc.

Wanting to use up some fresh cherries we had, I made this homemade basic cherry filling which I used in some low carb cherry filled cinnamon rolls.  The filling works for anything you need a cherry filling for.

12-16 oz. fresh (or frozen) cherries
1/4 sugar or sweetener
3 T corn starch
1/2 c water
1/4 c wine or diet cola or even just more water
1/4 t cinnamon

If using fresh cherries, pit them.  In a saucepan place all the other ingredients and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved.  Add the cherries.  Cook and bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook for about 7-8 minutes to thicken the sauce.  Use however you wish.
