Does it keep? 3 Days


  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 splash milk


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Add brown sugar and stir. Simmer the mixture while stirring frequently for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar and milk and stir. If you desire a thicker or thinner frosting, compensate with more milk or powdered sugar.
  4. Spread or pour the glaze over the cookies (I used a spoon), sprinkle with more cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (optional) and enjoy!
  5. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature to keep fresh for at least 3 days.
