  1. The sauce worked out really well with a vegan cheesecake recipe that I made. I didn't have any of the alcohol on hand, so made it with 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice and sliced peaches (un-pureed). The pectin in the peaches gave the sauce a really great consistency. Everyone loved it! Thanks.
  2. I try hard not to leave out any ingredients listed in a recipe, but sometimes that's just not possible ~ In this case I omitted the brandy! Then, I added the triple sec when I poured the puree into the saucepan, then added the other 3 ingredients to the puree, brought it to a boil, then reduced the heat to the lowest & simmered about 5 minutes, strring all the while (I wanted the flavor of the liqueur only)! Anway, I ended up with A VERY, VERY TASTY SAUCE, one I'll make often when peaches are in season! Got my first taste of this served over a sweet potato cake I'd just made! DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my teammates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #20]
