Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season hens inside and out with salt & pepper. Place in pan on a rack. Bake for one hour until juices run clear or the temperature in the thigh reaches 180 degrees.
Meanwhile, make the sauce by melting butter in a small pan. Add shallot and saute over medium heat for 5 minutes until tender. Stir in flour, until blended. Add chicken broth and cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened (about 3 minutes)
Stir in rosemary, wine and dried cherries and simmer for 5 minutes. Add vinegar and simmer for 1 minute. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
Using 2 dinner plates, place a hen on each one and top with some of the sauce. Could serve with rice and your favorite vegetable.
