Southern “Fry” Bread & Creamy Caramel Saucy Dip
By Donna Bardocz Grandmereb
I came up with a delicious creamy caramel to dip accompany my Southern "Fry" Bread for a quick and yummy appetizer. Adults will love it and kids will go absolutely crazy over it because it is fun to eat and really, really good!
On stovetop, melt butter on medium-low heat.
Add brown sugar and stir to dissolve.
Add vanilla, remove from heat.
Briskly stir in Cream Cheese until blended well.
Serve warm, or chill for 2 hours to thicken.
Place remaining 3 tablespoons of butter in a 10-in. ovenproof skillet; place in a 450° oven for 2-3 minutes or until melted (or just melt on top of stove). In a bowl, combine flour and buttermilk just until moistened. Turn onto a surface dusted with all-purpose flour; knead 4-5 times. Pat dough to 1/4-in. thickness.
Cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place in a single layer in prepared pan; carefully turn to coat. Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
*Self Rising Flour: Substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt for 1 cup self-rising flour.
*Buttermilk: Substitute 1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1/2 cup for the needed buttermilk. Let stand 5 minutes.

this sounds great and you included great subs for those like me that don't always have buttermilk. Thanks
