    Excellant! Fresh strawberries in an enchanting butterscotch cream sauce flavored with orange and brandy. I made the recipe as directed with heavy cream, 1 1/2 teaspoons of orange rind, sliced strawberries and served it over vanilla ice cream. Quick, easy, and sensational, a real treasure.
    This tasted just like a Creamsicle! lol I didn't do the flame thing technique with the brandy. I merely stirred it into the mixture. Used as a topping for Recipe #354487. Reviewed for ZWT 2009.

    I made this as directed for our valentine's day meal and served over ice cream. My husband and I liked it but thought there were too many flavors..when the sauce melted into the ice cream it tasted like a dreamsicle (which isn't a bad thing) but then the strawberries were tart and the sauce was a little greasy...Don't know maybe just us but if I made it again I would either leave off the strawberries or the oranges and reduce the butter.

    So good and so easy (but why can't I light the brandy on fire??) The sauce was thinner than I thought it would be, but I am not complaining. I bet this would be good with a slice of pound or angel food cake.

    I thought this was an excellent idea. The warm sauce melting the ice cream gave it an extra creamy taste.quick and easy.I will be using this one again for dinner parties
