    Lighten it up

    melode Motycka from Graham, WA

    I used nonfat carnation canned milk and Splenda insted of sugar. This turned out great. Tastes good on this season's fresh fruit.

    So Easy & Delicious!

    Heidi Trevethan from TUCSON, AZ

    This recipe is very simple and takes no time at all to make. I served this delicious sauce with strawberries and chocolate syrup. It tasted wonderful!! Also, when I stored the sauce, I placed a piece of plastic wrap right over the sauce to avoid a film on top.

    Cinnamon-Vanilla Sauce

    Toni Lang from PATCHOGUE, NY

    I cut back on the corn starch ( 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon ). It came out just right to serve over a peach crumb cake that I had just baked. It tasted yummy!

    Cinnamon-Vanilla Sauce with Fresh Fruit

    Cyndy B Wilber from Ravena, NY

    My family didn't care for this one. The thickness of the sauce and the heaviness of the cinnamon took away from the flavor of the fresh fruit, rather than add to it. I would suggest using less corn starch and perhaps a little nutmeg with the cinnamon.

    Cinnamon Vanilla Sauce w/fresh fruit

    Angie Miller from WARNER ROBINS, GA

    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

    try it warm

    Paula Mason from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

    I read a few rating comments prior to making this sauce, so I prepared to make adjustments for thickness and richness. I made 2 versions- an original recipe, and one with less cornstarch and fat free evaporated milk. In agreement with other tasters, the original was a bit much for fresh fruit, but it was Great served warm with warm spiced peaches and pears.We topped it off with nutmeg rather than cinnamon. The lighter version was much better on fresh sliced fruit, but I think with strawberries and grapes, we would have preferred to omit the cinnamon sticks

    Easy

    Debbie O'Melia from Freehold, NJ

    This was good but to thick. Try less cornstarch.

    We eat a lot of fruit salad and this was a hit with everyone in our household.

    Better on another dessert..

    Skye Chokel from Tucson, AZ

    This was good, but I thought it was too thick and rich for fresh fruit. While I ate it, I thought it would be much, much better as a sauce for bread puddings, apple cakes, or add a touch of brandy and use it over baked apples.
