  1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; stir in brown sugar, pecans, and nutmeg. Stir constantly and bring topping to a boil; allow to simmer until topping thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. To use as pie topping, spoon topping onto pie and broil until topping bubbles; watch carefully to avoid burning. Let pie cool before serving.
  3. To use as ice cream topping, just spoon warm or cooled topping over ice cream and serve.

The topping was good but I had to use twice as much butter as listed in the recipe. When I used only 1/4 cup the mixture was very thick with no liquid component. Using 1/2 cup butter worked a lot better. I also was unable to use the topping once cooled because it thickened so much. I had to re-heat it in order to use it.


Had the same issue as the first reviewer. Was this meant to be a crunchy/toffee topping because i expected it to be somewhat a softer sauce. I boiled it on medium heat for at least 3 minutes. More than that, it would've been burnt crispy. I cooled it for a few minutes but when I was ready to use the topping, it was thick, almost hardened. I had to reheat it and added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream.


Wow great topping drizzled on cheesecake. My friends loved it ! No changes made except added 1 T of vanilla.
