I've been making this for the last several years. Leftovers are awesome in oatmeal, on an English muffin, in and on pancakes, or just as a simple dessert. Yum.
I did the version with sherry and served it at Thanksgiving with traditional turkey and it received rave reviews from everyone, including the two vegetarian guests. Caught my husband spreading it on toasted English muffins the next morning. This sauce is a keeper!! So easy to make.
SO GOOD! I "Accidently" polished off instead of having pie :) Made as recipe indicated. Made the day before Thanksgiving after work. LOVE being able to be prepared ahead of time. Great idea with the waffles! Will have to try next year. The alcohol flavor didn't stand out at all. Was really good!
