Burnt Butter Icing

Here’s the icing from the Betty Crocker Picture Cook Book to go with the Butterscotch Drop Cookies. It only makes enough to cover 30 so you’ll need to do a double batch if you want to ice all of them.


4 tablespoons butter

1 cup icing sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla

hot water

Melt butter until golden brown. Blend in icing sugar and vanilla. Stir in 1-2 tablespoons hot water until icing spreads smoothly.

Note: Since the cookies are rather craggy, there is no way the icing is going to spread smoothly. Get it to a good modelling consistency and, once cool enough to handle, take a small quantity and smoosh it over the top of each cookie.

I haven’t tried this on anything else yet, but am thinking it would be good on cake or thinned down to a glaze for doughnuts.
