Caramel

  1. 1.In a heavy bottom pot, cook sugar on medium heat.

    2. Continue to cook sugar, making sure to stir with a rubber spatula to ensure the sugar is cooking evenly. Sugar will form clumps, that's ok it will melt eventually.

    3. Once sugar becomes an amber color, add in the butter. Shut off the heat and add in heavy cream slowly so the caramel won't start to bubble.

    4. Allow caramel to cool completely. Once ready to serve, drizzle a generous amount of caramel over the cheesecake. Enjoy!
