Helpful Hints

I use light brown sugar so that it enhances not overwhelms the flavor. I use flour instead of cornstarch so that it doesn't get jello-like and can be reheated.

Ok I haven't actually tried this recipe out, but it sounds fantastic! How could you go wrong with caramel and cinnamon...I'm pretty sure you can't. I even have a CD called Hot Caramel I could listen to while making it ;)

This sauce was absolutely beautiful. I made it to go with cinnamon raisin scrolls. It was greatly enjoyed by all. I will definitely add it to my cookery book for future desserts. Thank you!

Have not tried yet, but sounds delicious. My question is, can this sauce be jarred and refrigerated and if so, what would shelf life be.

Your response is greatly appreciated :


This was absolutely wonderful! I was going to make a peach cobbler tonight for a dinner party but the peaches at the market did not look good so I made an apple cobbler! Put ice cream and this sauce on top and it was the biggest hit! You just want to drink it!!
