 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  pound         sweet butter (real butter only!)
    3                    egg yolks
      1/4  cup           water
      1/4  cup           heavy cream
           dash          nutmeg
 	  1/4  teaspoon      arrowroot (1/4 - 1/2 t. depending on -- thickness
    1      tablespoon    water -- (optional)
 Melt butter in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling water.  (Or just use a
non-stick pan on direct low heat source.)  Add egg yolks one at a time beating
with whisk after each addition.  Add 1/4 cup water and cream.  Continue to whisk
until sauce begins to thicken, approx. 7 - 10 minutes.	If you prefer a thicker
sauce, add arrowroot mixed with additional 1T. of water and add to sauce.  The
added carbs are minimal but the texture of the sauce is a bit thicker.	Add
nutmeg for garnish if desired.	TIP:  Use only real butter to achieve the
thickest consistency of sauce.

 NOTES : Dr. A’s recipe calls for using a double boiler.  I'm always in a hurry
and use a regular, non-stick pan with the same success.
