WHO: We call faithful Food52er mrslarkin the scone lady, and you should too.
WHAT: Your desserts' new best friend.
HOW: Make a standard-issue caramel sauce, and whisk in a secret ingredient. Then drizzle on everything.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Don't let the addition of an untraditional ingredient stop you from making this. The vinegar creates a bright note among the otherwise sweet, rich sauce -- which makes it ok to eat spoonful after spoonful. Good thing, because we couldn't stop at just one.
