Spirited Butterscotch Sauce

While designed to be served with Sticky Steamed Pumpkin Pudding, we also like this butterscotch sauce on ice cream or gingerbread, or even with a slice of steamed chocolate pudding.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the butter, brown sugar, cream, and salt in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 1 hour.
  2. 2Add the Scotch, whisking until well blended and heated through. Serve warm. You may keep the sauce warm on LOW for up to 1 hour before serving. If made in advance, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
