    This glaze will take your baked goods and give them a nice warm hug.  The nuttiness that comes out when you brown butter is really apparent when you use it for something simple like this glaze.  It makes it feel so much warmer and it is really simple!  It was a perfect finish to this brown sugar nectarine sheet cake

   It just takes about 10 minutes to get the butter to a nice golden-brown color.  Then you stir in powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk to get your desired consistency. 

    It really is that easy.  This is a perfect glaze for oatmeal cookies.

    MiMi made something similar for a get together we had a few years ago.  She brought a three or four dozen cookies to a get together with probably 15 people in attendance.  

   She didn't leave with any.  People could not help themselves.  The cookies were good, but the glaze put them over the top!
