This sauce, which is featured in the Nuts About Butterscotch Tartlets (recipe), is also great warm drizzled over grilled pineapple, ice cream or even apple pie. Refrigerated, it will keep for about two weeks. Reheat it gently, adding a little cream if it's too thick.
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a medium, heavy-based saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the two sugars, the salt, water and corn syrup. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugars. Let the mixture boil for 5 minutes, stirring often. You'll see big, slow bubbles as it boils. Remove the sauce from the heat. Carefully whisk in the cream and vanilla (the sauce may sputter). Allow the sauce to cool to warm before serving.
