Brandy Sauce (for Pie or Gingerbread)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a small saucepan, mix the water, sugar, brandy, cornstarch and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the butter and vanilla. Serve hot over apple or mincemeat pie or gingerbread.
  4. Makes about 1 cup.

Note: This is such a good dessert sauce. Wonderful on warm pudding or cake, you can find all kinds of uses for it. We pour this on our Gingerbread Pancakes when syrup is insufficient.
