Mooney's Warm Vanilla Sauce

My great grandmother lived in New Boston, Tcxas. I have fond memories of her old, creaky house with the big front porch and the clawfoot bathtub. Everyone called her "Mooney". When cousins were younger and tried to call her "Ma Looney", the words ran together and she was called "Mooney". Mooney was a great cook - especially on those southern family traditional recipes. She passed on her secrets to my grandmother - MoMo and then on to my mom and then on to me. This is amazing served over Cream Cheese Pound Cake.
