I generally make this with cream sherry, but you can use dry if you want it not quite so sweet. The refrigerating overnight is to allow the fruit and sherry sauce flavors to blend more thoroughly. It's good served hot out of the oven or cold later on (after baking of course). May be served in dishes or poured over pound cake, pudding or ice cream. Or you can put a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top. Times do not include chilling time overnight.
