    Chef Kate's Note:

    With both butter and Scotch, this sauce is the real thing! It's infinitely better than the kind you buy in a jar, and it takes only about 10 minutes to make. Serve it over ice cream or over grilled pineapple slices or with both together, or as a dessert waffle topping, along with sliced bananas and chopped walnuts.

      Great simple recipe! I left out the corn syrup and it turns out just fine. The only thing this recipe really needs is salt, so I used salted butter and then added salt to taste.

      No surprise here...another 5 star from Chef Kate. I always love your sauces! Very easy and quick, directions are perfect and it tastes amazing. Didn't have the need for a whole bottle of scotch, so just bought an airline bottle of Glenlevit. Thanks Kate!!

      Butterscotch sauce doesn't come any better than this! If planning to have some left over, it keeps runnier if not cooked all 10 mins. I only cooked mine a minute and it was thick enough allready.
