1 egg

1/4 c. water

1/3 c. white corn syrup

1/4 c. butter

2/3 c. brown sugar

Mix well and boil in double boiler until thick. Store in refrigerator.

If you can't use butter due to allergies use a soy butter it tastes just as good, along with if you cannot use the egg, boil one cup of flax with two cups of water and then let stand over night after it is strained, use 2 tbs as a egg substitute. If you use a real egg make sure you are constantly whisking it over the double boiler, because you could end up making scrambled eggs. Also you can use brown corn syrup,, although it will then have a sweeter taste. I hope this answer and recipe helps.
