Cinnamon Vanilla Sauce w/fresh fruit
I just made this today waiting for my friends to come in for coffee. Every one liked it, but thought the sauce was a little thick. I will make this again but I won't put as much corn startch in it...I also sprinkled it with cinnamon instead of using cinnamon sticks
