Dessert Wars. Part 4 of 4. Hot Vanilla Butter Sauce.

For my fourth use of vanilla in the Dessert Wars April Vanilla challenge, I'm going with a Vanilla Butter Sauce to drizzle over the whole concoction and bring it all together.
Ingredients for Rosie's Vanilla Butter Sauce: 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 stick butter 1/4 cup sugar pinch salt seeds of 1 vanilla bean 2 tsp vanilla extract In a small saucepan bring to boil the cream, butter, sugar, salt, and vanillas. Reduce to simmer for a few minutes. Serve warm.
Sugar going into cream and butter.
Add in seeds from one vanilla bean and pour in about 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Bring the vanilla mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes.
This sauce is lovely and delicious and I'm loving it.
I've poured it over one of my little Vanilla Meringues. This is most excellent.
I'm going to have to come with more things with which to use this Vanilla Sauce. Oooh ... Bread Pudding comes to mind. Maybe with a splash of rum or bourbon. For Part 1 - Vanilla Biscotti. For Part 2 - Vanilla Pots de Creme. For Part 3 - Vanilla Meringues. Stay tuned for my Dessert Wars post tomorrow. It will wrap everything up in a nice neat little package. All four parts. Wrapped up with a bow.
