Creamy Caramel Sauce

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: about 1 1/2 cups

Pastry chef Bob Truitt’s ultra-rich caramel sauce can be made in just 20 minutes. It’s delicious drizzled on ice cream desserts, like these Butter-Pecan Blondie Sundaes.

  1. 1 1/4 cups sugar
  2. 1/4 cup water
  3. 1 cup heavy cream
  4. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  5. Pinch of salt
  1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over moderate heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook without stirring until a medium-amber caramel forms, 5 minutes. Add the cream, butter and salt and simmer until thickened, 2 minutes; let cool.
