Butterscotch sauce recipe

The butterscotch sauce comes from a recipe I saw on Food Network from the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

For the Butterscotch Sauce:

  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, split [I used vanilla extract]
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons good quality Scotch (depending on your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt [I omitted this]
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, heated

I didn’t even look at the directions, I just cooked the sugar and butter over medium heat until it was thick and bubbly and the sugar had all melted. I took it off the heat, and poured in the rest one at a time while still stirring. I then let it cool a bit before putting it on ice cream.
