Salted Maple Bourbon Butter Cream Sauce

(Yield: 4-4½ Cups)

4 Cups Heavy Cream

1/2 Cup Vermont Maple Sugar

1 Cup Pure Maple Syrup

2 Tablespoons Kentucky Bourbon

6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Bean Sea Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Tellicherry Peppercorns

We use this sauce as a rich topping for our Sweet Potato Bread Pudding recipe. But don’t stop there. It is great with a lot of desserts. We particularly love it with ice cream.


Combine all ingredients in a medium size, non-reactive saucepan. Place over medium-high heat. Stirring frequently, heat mixture to boiling. Reduce to medium and simmer until sauce has thickened and reduced by 1/3. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before serving.

No Home Chef's kitchen is
complete without Tellicherry
peppercorns, which are considered the finest pepper in the world. Left on the vine longer than other black peppercorns, these berries are given time to develop their complex, robust flavor to develop more fully.
