EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Serve picture-perfect pieces of this dessert: Use a sharp knife, dipping it in hot water and wiping it dry between cuts.

Be sure to boil the cornstarch mixture for only 1 minute. If the cornstarch mixture boils too long, it can break down and prevent the sauce from thickening.
