In the dead of winter, this raspberry topping will bring you the taste of summer.  It is easy as pie to prepare and looks rather beautiful drizzled on top of scoops of ice-cream or a piece of decadent cheese cake.  And it tastes as good as it looks.  You can substitute strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries if you like.

Recipe adapted from The Best of Country Cooking

Ingredients

1 cup sugar

3 tablespoons corn starch

3 tablespoons water

1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries

Directions
