Vanilla Sauce Ingredients:
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Utilizing a thick-bottom sauce pan, melt the butter and add the sugar, heavy cream and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. After about 5 minutes, add the vanilla extract and take away from the heat. Serve either warm or cold and pour over your favorite dessert.
This sauce will be very thin while it's hot, however once it cools, it will thicken considerably.
