Easy Caramel Sauce

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 stick butter (4 Tbsp)
1/2 cup half & half or cream*
1 Tbsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt

Mix the brown sugar, dairy, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook while whisking gently for 5-7 minutes, or until it gets thicker. Add the vanilla and cook another minutes to thicken further. Turn off the heat, cook slightly, and pour the sauce into a jar. Refrigerate until cold.

*Cream will make the sauce thicker. If it is too thin, cook for a few more minutes.
