This sauce is very useful for desserts. It can be used for cheesecakes, cakes, cookies, and as a topping for ice cream. If you want the sauce to have a thicker consistency, you can add more cornstarch. Usually I double or quadruple this recipe, and store the sauce. It freezes well. I use the same recipe to make partridge berry sauce.
