15 Delicious Dessert Sauces: Part One

Click here for Part Two of the 15 Delicious Dessert Sauces. 

Click here for Part Three of the 15 Delicious Dessert Sauces.

Desserts need sauces. Pour them over ice cream, cake, pudding, waffles, or whatever dessert you please. Sauces add flavor, interest, moisture, richness, color and attractiveness. It's the difference between a scoop of plain vanilla ice cream and a delectable Sundae, or fresh pears and Pears Belle Helene.

I have 15 dessert sauces to share with you. I'll share the first 5 today and will continue with the series next Thursday. What will you share with me for Vintage Recipe Thursday? Do you have a childhood favorite? A recipe passed down through generations? Perhaps you have an old cookbook like I do, or some old recipe postcards? Even a 10 year old recipe torn out of a magazine will work.
