1 stick butter
2 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning

Simmer until liquid has evaporated and is reduced by 2/3.In another small sauce pan add the heavy cream. Bring to a boil and reduce by half. While liquids are reducing, cut the butter into small pieces. Let sit so butter can soften. Once liquids are reduced, remove from heat. Strain lemon mixture and add to heavy cream. Keeping pan warm on the burner after turning it off, slowly add 2-3 pieces of the butter to the lemon cream mixture, using a whip constantly. Continue to whip while adding the butter.
