Brown Sugar Cookies with Browned Butter Frosting

These soft, moist, yummy cookies make the perfect fall treat. 

Brown Sugar Cookies with Browned Butter Frosting
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1  1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream

Blend the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.  Add the eggs, beating well between and after.  Add the vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.  Turn off the mixer and add the dry ingredients.  Mix slowly, adding the sour cream and blend well.  Drop teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet or silpat.  The dough is very sticky.  Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.  Cool and frost with the browned butter frosting.

Browned Butter Frosting
1/2 cup butter
3 cups powdered sugar
Milk as needed

Put the butter in a saucepan.  Over medium heat, melt then cook until the butter starts to turn brown.  It will smell nutty and yummy.   Reomove from the heat and add the powdered sugar and enough milk or cream to make a nice spreading consistency.  Frost the cookies.
