3/4

2
cups whipping cream

1/4

Fold in 1/3 of whipped cream; fold in remaining whipped cream. Reserve 1 cup mixture for piped edge; spread remaining mixture over brownie. Using decorating bag fitted with star tip (1/4 to 3/8-inch opening), pipe decorative border around edge of brownie, making sure border doesn't touch side of pan. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours.

In small saucepan, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, the cornstarch and raspberry purée. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens. Cool to room temperature.
