A tasty glaze is the perfect way to elevate so many things. This recipe combines the goodness of brown butter with the rich warm flavor of maple syrup.

We love it over cinnamon rolls, coffee cakes, Bundt cakes and more. It is a great way to take them to the next level.

I absolutely love browned butter glaze, especially for my fall treats.  The browned butter adds such a warm flavor that compliments the spices of fall baked goods.  

Want to know how to take to the next level?  Add maple syrup!    

I knew a pumpkin skillet cinnamon roll was in order for the fall and what better to top it off than this deliciously sweet and flavorful golden glaze of goodness?

 In addition to being perfect on this pumpkin cinnamon roll, it would be great on apple treats, oatmeal cookies, coffee cake or drizzle it over a Bundt or pound cake. You will be happy with whatever you put it on!

Carlee, Thanks for stopping by to comment on my S'mores Pie post. I love maple flavored everything so I can't wait to try this glaze.
