Pour batter into greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

In a large skillet, combine raspberry puree', sugar, lemon juice and pears. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until pears are tender. Serve sauce warm or cool over wedges of gingerbread. Garnish each serving with sweetened whipped cream, if desired. Makes 8 servings.

I made a healthy, low-cal and super-tasty red, white and blue desert for a 4th of July potluck back in the 1980's. My daughter (now grown) still raves about how it's her all-time favorite desert!

You choose your ingredient proportions ;-) Place Nilla wafers in bottom of small serving bowls, spoon the raspberry syrup from container over the wafers, top with raspberries, wait one minute so the syrup seeps in to the wafers and serve :-)
