Raspberry Sauce


When I went grocery shopping this past weekend, there was a display of packaged crepes and half-pints of berries. I thought it would be nice to have them as a light dessert one night this week. I searched "raspberry sauce" on google and came up with this recipe from recipezaar. Since I only had a half-pint, I scaled the recipe down to 1.5 servings, which was just enough to cover 2 crepes each and have a little bit left over. The scaled version is what I have posted. The sauce was pretty good. Joel thought it was a little bit sweet but he still liked it. The packaged crepes, however, were a little bit "off" in flavor. I could almost taste the plastic packaging that they were in. I think if I do this again, I will try my hand at making my own crepes.


1/2 pint Raspberries
1/8 cup Water
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tablespoon Cornstarch

In a small saucepan, crush the raspberries (I used a potato masher) with the water. Add the sugar and the cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
