Butterscotch Cookies with Burnt Butter Icing

A few weeks back a friend of mine (Hi Melissa) asked me for the recipe for Iced Amish Cookies. This was the recipe I thought of when she asked.  Ever since that day I have been craving these cookies.  They are super soft and yummy.  I love anything that has burnt butter icing on it.  Burning or Browning your butter gives the icing such a good flavor.  The cookies are so soft they remind me of cake.

Cally will be home this coming week for spring break.  Her and I have a trip planned to go to Amish County in northern Ohio next week.  We will be sure to take lots of pictures and sample lots of goodies so we can report back here next week when we return.

These Butterscotch Cookies With Burnt Butter Icing took 3rd place in 2008 for Best Cookie in the County at the Clark County Fair.
