Butterscotch Syrup

My mother’s homemade brown sugar syrup.  Add half and half and vanilla, and voila!

Butterscotch Syrup for French Toast

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tbsp real vanilla

1/4 cup water

1/4 stick of butter

1/4 cup cream or half & half

I usually throw these all into a cold pan together, slowly bringing up the heat and whisking until it comes to a boil.  Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before serving.
