    WOW! This sauce was so easy to make and so delicious. I made it without the brandy and it tasted like a wonderful butterscotch sauce. I served it over warm bread pudding, yum yum! I highly recomend it.  -  28 Dec 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Used the cream as suggested. I really couldn't serve this because I kept sneaking a taste and there almost was not enough left. :-) It's really wonderful and I think it would be okay without the brandy if you don't have that on hand.  -  21 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
