For the love of all that is good and holy, BROWN YOUR BUTTER FIRST! :-)

Oh. My. God.
Sinful! I also added a bit more maple (cuz I love it), a bit more sugar (to thicken), a touch of vanilla, and used half n’ half instead of milk. But seriously, the brown butter sends this over the top. I put it over afarmgirlsdabbles “yeasted waffle” recipe and almost died from the overwhelming deliciousness.

That icing is fabulous! It is a must to go with the Cinnamon Bun Pancakes.

My husband and I went on a couples retreat and I made the Cinnamon Bun pancakes with this icing. It was purely magical! I could eat this stuff with a spoon. I will DEFINITELY be keeping this stuff on hand to cover as many things as possible with it.

Very delicious! I had to add almost another cup of powdered sugar and it still wasn’t white like the picture. However, the taste was phenomenal! I did brown my butter first because of the suggestion. Make sure you sift your powdered sugar in!

Wow, this is RICH. Fun to have tried, but a bit too over the top for our tastes. If that’s what you like, you will be thrilled with this recipe.

5-mitts from me. This stuff was so good I could’ve drank the leftovers. Served with the Cinnamon Bun pancakes.

Have mercy! This stuff is DEC-A-DENT! My little clan was one happy family when I served it with multiplydelicious’s Carrot Cake Pancakes. And, lucky us, there’s some leftover for next time! Thank you, Ree! (You wicked woman, you.)
