In a separate large saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat and add the flour(3 to 4 tablespoons, depending on how thick you like your sauce) to form a roux, stir using a wooden spoon and allow to cook for 4 – 5 minutes. Add a little of the cream and milk at a time, stirring continuously until you achieve a thickened, smooth sauce.
