Comment on this recipe

Note: May be prepared 8 hours ahead of time.

Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1-1/3 cups warm whipping cream
2 tablespoons Cognac
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions

Combine sugar and 2 tablespoons water in heavy saucepan. Mix over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat; boil without stirring until sugar is amber in color, about 3 minutes. Add warm cream to sugar mixture. Stir over medium-high heat until smooth and reduced to 1-1/4 cups, which takes about 5 minutes. Add Cognac and cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Add butter and stir until melted. Cover and chill. Reheat over low heat stirring before serving. Fresh pears, sliced apples or bananas are delicious in this fondue.
