Raspberry Dessert with Vanilla Sauce Recipe

Raspberry Dessert with Vanilla Sauce Recipe

This delicious fruity dessert comes from my German background. Mom always called it "Rote Grütz." We had a large raspberry patch, so she served it often in summer, when fresh berries were in season. —Marie Baumgartner, Stoughton, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 cups unsweetened raspberries, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1. In a saucepan, combine the raspberries, orange juice and tapioca; let stand for 15 minutes. Stir in sugar and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir 1/2 cup of hot mixture into the egg; return all to the pan, stirring constantly.
