This is a wonderful sauce. I like to eat it plain but also on mixed berries. It's also really good made with brown sugar instead of white.

I made this with Greek vanilla yogurt and left out the vanilla. It was really delicious and made a beautiful dip/sauce for a lot of the berries that we had leftover from my sister's grad party. It was perfect as it was very close to a dessert and worked even better than half and half (which we normally use) as it was light and sweet.

What a great recipe, Paula! It is creamy, light and tasty! Loved it! :) I used real ground vanilla bean for even more vanilla flavour and reduced the sugar a tad. It was lovely that way and I will keep this one handy as I think its totally company worthy.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper, hon!
