Brown Butter Sauce
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 57g (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 100g (~3/4 cup) powdered sugar, sifted
  • 15 milliliters / 1 tablespoon milk, any type
  • 5 milliliters / 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Brown the butter; heat butter in a small heavy duty saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly; when butter turns to an amber/light brown color, remove from heat immediately (you should be able to smell the deeper more caramel flavor of the butter)
  2. Pour butter into a medium heat-proof bowl (do NOT leave behind the sediment, it adds flavor); whisk in sugar, milk and vanilla
  3. Immediately pour glaze over hot apple crisp and serve
