1/3 c sugar
6 T butter, melted

1 1/3 c sugar
6 T cornstarch
1/8 t salt
1 1/2 c water (2 c if using fresh berries)
4 T corn syrup
1, 12 oz bag frozen raspberries, thawed OR 1 pint fresh raspberries
Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt together in a medium saucepan. Add 1/2 c water and stir with a whisk until smooth. Add remaining water, corn syrup and raspberries. Cook over medium heat until thick.
