- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- Remove from heat and stir in nuts.
This was simple to make and absolutely delicious, not as sweet or as strong in cinnamon as I expected. I made it to serve over New York cheesecake and vanilla ice cream, using pecans rather than walnut due to allergy to walnuts in a member of the family. It got rave reviews and recipe requests. I made ahead of time and then just warmed in the microwave, on 40% power, prior to serving. Sometime I think I'll try using the Splenda brown sugar product. or a mixture with brown sugar, to see how that works, just to moderate the high sugar content.
This sauce is delicious! I have been waiting to buy some vanilla ice cream to take a photo but it hasn't happened so I will just tell you it is very tasty! Thanks Bev! Made for Newest Zaar Tag!
