This recipe is so versatile that's why I named it as such. This is great as a topping over vanilla ice cream, a slice of cheesecake or a slice of pound cake. It can also be used as a pastry filling. Place filling in baked phyllo cups (frozen food section) for a quick dessert or you can use as a filling in pre-made frozen puff pastry by rolling out to a rectangle, spooning filling down the middle and fold sides in leaving middle somewhat exposed and baking until golden brown. Then again, it's great just all by itself.

I made this over the weekend, it was fabulous. My husband loves deserts. I made this and served it to him over vanilla ice cream, although this recipe has 100s of uses.
