1 1/4 cups (serving size: 2 1/2 tablespoons)

This rich-tasting sauce has grown-up appeal, thanks to the bourbon, and makes a delicious accompaniment for Whole Wheat Pancakes or Buttermilk Pancakes.

How to Make It

Combine sugar and 1/3 cup water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring constantly. Stir in pecans, milk, butter, bourbon, and vanilla extract. Reduce heat, and cook 3 minutes or until mixture is thick and bubbly.

I tried this with the buttermilk pancakes and it was very tasty. Being a fan of maple syrup, I'll substitute it for the sugar and water next time. For those on Weight Watchers, 1.5 Tbsp is 2 points (enough for 3 of the buttermilk pancakes for a total of 7.5 points).

This sauce had excellent flavor, it could have been alittle thicker though.

Wow! Better than I thought it would be. It was sweet, rich, and delicious. I used it on top of the whole wheat buttermilk pancakes and it went perfect. Would be good on ice cream too....any other ideas?
