Creamy Caramel Saucy Dip Instructions:
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.
Southern “Fry” Bread Directions:
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.
*Recipe Substitute Helps:
*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.
