Raspberry Coulis

Unfortunately I wanted to make a chocolate lava cake topped with powdered sugar and serve it on a plate drizzled with raspberry coulis. I made the raspberry coulis, and when it came time to make desert My in-laws requested my creme brulee again. I made them creme brulee the night before and they requested me to make it every night. It was great because they said it was the best creme brulee they've ever tasted. Creme brulee is my father in laws favorite as well, so he's had his share of cremes. I was so stoked that mine was better than any restaurant they've ever been to.  It's a pretty damn good recipe. So i'll take the compliment. :) Buuut now I have all these ingredients for other desserts I wanted to make. Guess i'll have to unload them on my friends. I'll enclose the recipe for raspberry coulis incase anyone wants to use it for a desert they're making. I'm sure it would be delicious on top of ice cream. Also you could make it using strawberries I would assume. I'll have to try it. recipe as follows

3 cups raspberries
1/4 cup confectioners sugar, plus more if needed
1 tsp fresh lemon juice.

To make the raspberry coulis, in a food processor, combine the raspberries, confectioners sugar...

and pulse until smooth.

Pass the mixture through a medium-mesh sieve set over a bowl

once done, stir in 1/2 tsp. of lemon juice. Taste and add more lemon juice or sugar,if needed. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, up to overnight.
 since I didn't get to use mine, I stuck it in the freezer. I read online it's freezable so we shall see. lol. I did taste it and it was super yum yums. So excited to make any dessert look fancy. Here is a picture of someone's stuffed french toast plated with raspberry coulis. I'll definitely have to make this someday too!!
