“This is just to die for!! I've never served this without someone wanting the recipe, but more than that, they want to take leftovers home! (That's why I always make a double batch!). It's a simple make-ahead sauce and can be used for dessert or breakfast. It's a great presentation when served in a wine or martini glass. I got this recipe from Bon Appetit magazine in 1995.”
