Butterscotch Dessert Sauce
Rich and buttery, this sauce is a hit with young and old. Good with ice cream or for a treat, with pancakes stacked with whipped cream, sliced bananas, and toasted pecan nuts.
Prepare ahead: The sauce can be refrigerated up to 1 week. To keep the sauce from separating, warm it in a few batches, letting the first portion heat before adding another.
