there's a very small window of time between browned butter and scorched butter. watch it carefully--it happens very quickly. true, the darker brown the butter, the more flavorful and nutty the taste. you will probably not burn your butter except through carelessness, not to worry....

Thanks. It just so happens that I have both salted butter and half & half. I'll be trying this soon.

If you enjoy the brown butter try it in a frosting. Brown the butter and add 10x sugar to thicken and a few drops of vanilla. The brown butter frosting is great with spicey cookies and cakes.

butter, cream, flour, recipe, salt

Brown Butter Cream Sauce...old family recipe This is a sauce that I grew up eating, passed on generation to generation...and my kids absolutely gobble it up on pasta, and it`s great on potatoes too! My measurments are approximate, since I have never measured the ingredients, just watched my mom in the kitchen. Brown about 2tbsp salted butter over med heat. Not just melt, brown. Add about 2 tbsp flour and stir it in, then add half and half cream, about 1.5 cups. Stir continually until thickened into a creamy sauce. If it`s too thick, add some more cream. Add salt to taste. This is so simple, yet so delicious. When I was a kid, I could have happily had a meal of just the sauce and some bread :chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
