Posted by request. I haven't made the sauce but it was in my recipe files because the addition of maple syrup sounded delicious!

Wonderful sauce !! I made if for a New York Cheesecake, and used the leftovers spooned over vanilla icecream. Thanks for posting Lorac. :)

I really liked this recipe. I cut the recipe in half, but added more frozen raspberries than it called for when cut in half. (About 8-12 oz.) I also squeezed a fresh lemon into the sauce after it was finished. It gave it a nice zing as raspberries have more of a sour flavor than sweet. I would even add a touch less of sugar next time too because the maple syrup works great! I will definitely make this again!
