Caramel Topped Sundaes #FrenchFridayswithDorie #FoodRevolutionDay

Cooking with Katie

My daughter, Katie, has about 5 dishes she will cook. Not a huge repertoire for the child of a foodie. Basically, they’re enough to get her by when she doesn’t like what I’ve cooked for dinner. So I flipped through Around My French Table for a recipe to teach her how to make. She is one picky girl, so to pique her interest, I knew I’d have to start with the dessert section.  When we travel, and the food is not to her liking, she’ll often supplement with ice cream or gelato. A little protein, a little dairy…and no complaints. It’s not worth having a huffy offspring on holiday.  So when I spied Dorie’s recipe for vanilla ice cream, I thought it would be a wonderful basic dessert recipe for her to learn. Then we both spotted the warm caramel sauce on the adjoining page…and it became a two-for-one deal. We did a lot of licking of spoons and bowls as we created these Caramel Topped Sundaes made with Dorie’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water (Dorie uses 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup heavy cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (Dorie does not add vanilla)
