You know the term 'Awesome Sauce'?
Congratulations. You have just found the origin of the definition. Good for you.
Now go make some and enjoy. ON EVERYTHING.
SALTED CARAMEL COOKIE BUTTER SAUCE
1 cup sugar
½ cup heavy cream
¼ cup water
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks
¾ teaspoon salt*
½ cup cookie butter (Like Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter or Biscoff)
*I find with the addition of the cookie butter, this is the perfect amount of salt, although feel free to adjust to your preferred taste.
In a small saucepan, heat sugar and water over medium-high heat. Stir lightly only until the water and sugar are incorporated. Allow sugar to come to a boil, swishing the pan occasionally, until mixture turns dark amber in color, about 6 to 7 minutes. Color will develop quite quickly, so it's best you stay close to the stove. If sugar crystals form on the sides, use a pastry brush dipped in water to help dissolve.
