Shortcut Dessert

It's fall- hurray!  The weather is turning cooler, kick-off times dictate our Sundays, and I am thinking about apples.  So, I was going to share a recipe for a beautiful and impressive apple tarte tatin...and then I thought, who has time for that?  Seriously, are we not all stretched a little thin right now?  But when you still want to make something special and delicious and homemade, you need a go-to recipe, and this is it.  As a bonus, it's incredibly easy to make, which is why I feel like it makes for a great life compromise.  Most days I am simply not going to have the time (or the bandwidth) to make my own ice cream, but I can whip this up in 5 minutes, pour it over store-bought vanilla, and I guarantee you, no one will miss that apple tart.

 

Real-Deal Butterscotch

1 cup (packed) Brown Sugar

1/3 cup Heavy Cream

1.5 oz. Butter

2 Tbsp. Corn Syrup

2 Tbsp. Scotch or Bourbon

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Bring the sugar, cream, butter and corn syrup to a boil.  Cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat and stir in the scotch and vanilla.  Enjoy over ice cream, pound cake or baked apples!
