This is a wonderful caramel/butterscotch type sauce that is wonderful served over a dish of ice cream, sliced bananas, french toast for A Complete Breakfast in Bed for the One You Love, and delicious on a warm slice of fruit pie, especially apple pie! For an adult treat, add a shot of rum when incorporating the pecans. Endless possibilites!

Made this recipe as given but without the optional rum, & we had it atop frozen vanilla yogurt! Absolutely delicious & a definite keeper of a recipe, for sure! Now I'm looking forward to having it over some plain ol' homemade apple pie, as this next week we're taking off half a day to go to our favorite local apple-growing area! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
