How Sweet Is That?'s Butterscotch Sauce


This is a rich and decadent butterscotch sauce that you can use for many different things.  When my children were young, their favorite use was on vanilla ice cream with bananas sliced on top.  You can use it for a drizzle for cheesecakes, over baked apples or just to sweeten up a piece of pie or cake.  Once you start putting it on a few different things, you'll be looking for ways to spread the sweetness. 



1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup golden corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup whipping cream


In a heavy saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and water to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil for one minute, reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.  Remove from hear and carefully stir in vanilla.  Let cool slightly.  Stir in cream.  Sauce thickens as it cools.  Store in sealable jar in the refrigerator. 
Makes 1 1/2 cups.
