My dad's family makes this to pour over pancakes, waffles, crepes, or scones. It is simply decadent.
1/2 c (1 stick) butter
1 c sugar
1 1/2-2 c cream
(you can do this in any amount--the way my aunt actually gave it to me was "1 part butter, 2 parts sugar, 3-4 parts cream)
Melt it all together in a saucepan, blend well.
Serve warm over pancakes with fruit and slivered almonds. Or use in place of other syrup. Store leftovers (if you have any!) in the fridge.
Don't try to cheat and use milk. It's worth the cream. Trust me.
