A very delightful sauce that can be used on various dishes. When using the sauce on a cheesecake, let it drizzle over the edges. When serving the cheesecake, spoon 2 tablespoons on the serving plate, the place the cheesecake piece into the sauce. You can also substitute and use blueberries for a sauce.


  1. In a medium size saucepan, add raspberries and sugar and bring to a boil mixing well until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Strain through a very fine sieve or a cheesecloth.
  3. Return puree' to saucepan.
  4. Add lemon juice and Brandy and stir well.
  5. In a cup, mix together tapioca starch and water until smooth.
  6. Bring raspberry puree' back to boil and add tapioca starch mixture slowly using a whisk to mix well until sauce thickens to your desired consistency.
  7. You may use this sauce hot or let it cool.

Delicious, and easy. I used frozen raspberries and elected not to strain it, since I like the chunks in there. Thanks so much for sharing!

Great flavor. I used frozen raspberries. It was nice and tart while still being sweet enough. Served with chocolate filled puff pastries. Thank you.
