And to cap off our President's Day ~ bowls of vanilla ice cream topped with homemade butterscotch sauce. Mmm, mmm, mmm! I'm not sure that ice cream sundaes are particularly patriotic, but no one raised an eyebrow when I passed these out. ;) (Hang on ~ here's a connection. And a recipe too! Don't you just love Google?)
And now Bill and the boys are waiting for me in the family room with "National Treasure" all queued up. I think we just found a new President's Day tradition! :)
But before I go, here's our family recipe for that scrumptious sauce ...
Grama's Butterscotch Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter (I used unsalted)
- 1/2 cup Karo syrup
- 1/2 cup cream or evaporated milk (I used heavy cream)
- 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix and boil first three ingredients to the soft ball stage. Add cream or evaporated milk and vanilla. Stir. Serve over ice cream (or maybe bread pudding).
Have a good night, my friends. :)
