I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

The Queen’s Hearty Hollandaise Sauce

A good, traditional Hollandaise sauce is delightfully rich while also quite delicate. Delicious!

My version of Hollandaise is not quite as delicate as the classic version, which is actually part of its charm as the emulsion doesn’t break apart as easily. Also, because it is made with whole eggs, you don’t need to worry about how you’re going to use up the leftover egg whites. It is delicious, easy to prepare, and extremely versatile.

My suggestion is not to make this until close to the time you will be using it as it can separate. If, when you are ready to use it, it has separated a little, add a tablespoon of hot water very slowly, whisking briskly until mixture comes together again. If, for some reason it doesn’t thicken up again, use it anyway and call it “lemon butter.”


Look Delicious?
