Caramel Sauce

This homemade sauce is a great topper for ice cream, crepes, or baked apples.

1/2 c Brown Sugar
1 T Cornstarch
1/4 c Water (I use apple juice or cider when it's going on apples)
1/3 c Cream (you can also use half & half or milk, but cream is really best)
1/8 c White Corn Syrup
1 T Butter
1/2 t Vanilla extract

  1. In a pan on medium heat, mix brown sugar & cornstarch until homogeneous.
  2. Slowly add the water or cider, cream, & corn syrup.
  3. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture starts to bubble.
  4. Continue cooking & stirring for about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from heat & stir in the butter & vanilla until completely incorporated.
  6. Serve warm or let cool.
