If your tastebuds are looking for dessert, but you are watching your sweets, look to this recipe for plenty of sweet, but not enough calories to matter! A great mixture of flavors, sweet and tart. AND it's easy, too! I add a little brown sugar to the syrup while its cooking for a little carmelization. Thanks Miller!

Miller, thank you for this delightful dessert, it is really delicious, and a great alternative to high calorie choices when I'm looking for something sweet.

Very nice! Although the sauce never thickened up, it just seemed to increase more and more as the fruit cooked. So I used a cornstarch slurry to thicken it a bit. I also added just a few chopped raisins and 1 1/2 packets of Truvia sweetener, in addition to the honey. We did not have the whipped topping, but I'm sure that would be good on it! I'll be making it again, with the changes. Thanks Miller!
