    Brown Butter is one of my favorite fall ingredients. It enhances just about every dish – and even better, baked good!

    So, I took my favorite sugar cookie buttercream icing recipe and adapted it with brown butter. It has a deeper, richer flavor and makes the perfect sugar cookie for fall!

    Now all I can do is think about it! I could just eat the Brown Butter Frosting off of a spatula for days. You can slather it on cinnamon rolls, cookies, cakes or warm it to pour over scones and muffins. One bite and this Brown Butter Frosting recipe will be your favorite, too.
