This is a great topping for ice cream, and—since it's thicker than sweetened berries—it's nice over sponge cake or shortcake, too. My family especially enjoys spreading with sour cream and plain yogurt over waffles. In fact, no one ever asks for maple syrup anymore! —Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota
These scrumptious dumplings are very easy to fix. I like to prepare them just before a meal and then set them aside to be served for dessert. They're good cold, too! This recipe is popular with our neighbors in states to the east.
Refreshing Cake with Lemon Sauce completes the delightful dinner. "This is a family favorite on hot summer nights," notes Claire Dion from Canterbury, Connecticut.
Cream cheese, milk and pudding mix are all that's needed for the sunny sauce drizzled over prepared pound cake and topped with a few berries.
This unusual dessert is as pretty as it is delicious. Topped with brown sugar and cinnamon, the peaches come off the grill sweet and spicy. The raspberry sauce adds a refreshing touch.

Fast to prepare, even quicker to grill, this dish is always a winner at my house. We both love the raspberry-Dijon sauce. You can substitute chicken breasts for the turkey if you wish. —JoAnn Handley, Mount Dora, Florida
I combined cranberries with strawberries and raspberries for a tasty twist on traditional holiday sauce. Cinnamon and cloves spice up this fruity topping that's great over poultry or pork.

Raspberries replace the traditional tomatoes in this unique barbecue sauce. Red pepper flakes add a little kick to the thick ruby-red sauce. Great over chicken breasts or pork tenderloin, brush on the sauce near the end of the grilling time. —Garnet Pirre, Helena, Montana
"This is one of my family's all-time favorites," writes Shirley Privatsky of Dickinson, North Dakota. "It's so festive looking-especially when served in a clear glass bowl or topped with raspberries like a sundae."
