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.
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.
