    Butterscotch sauce is like a caramel made with brown sugar instead of white and it is perfect when paired with the lightly spiced apples. In each bite you taste butterscotch, apples, cinnamon and just a hint of cardamom.


    That butterscotch sauce looks incredible! And what better to do with it than pour it over pie?! I ll take a big slice!
