Basic Cream Sauce
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups heavy whipping cream (16 ounces)
salt and pepper (to taste)
(optional: 1 cup or more of your favorite cheese)
Melt butter in a medium sauce pan.
Once butter is melted, add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir with a whisk to prevent any lumps.
Add salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
Pour 1 cup of heavy whipping cream into the butter-flour mixture and continue stirring. It will start thickening in less than 1 minute.
Add the rest of the cream and stir.
The sauce will then start reheating back up and be thicker within 3-5 minutes.
Take off heat once thickened.
(Optional: Stir in your favorite cheese to melt.)
Makes 2 cups of Cream Sauce.
