  1. Place the cream and garlic in a small pot over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, remove from the heat, cover, and let steep for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until translucent, about 4-5 minutes.

Review
I always carry three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's pie. My first cookbook, The Fearless Baker, is out on October 24, 2017.
