RECIPE BACKSTORY
This sauce has become famous in my circle of friends who beg for it every time I offer to bring something sweet to the party. You will crave this sauce, and you will dream of this sauce. Plus it's so easy! To date I have served it over cheesecake, berries, vanilla pudding, and spongecake rolls filled with strawberries and cream. If you find another irresistable combination, please let me know! (No worries about salmonella, the egg is fully cooked in the process.)
