soft brown sugar cookies with browned butter icing

BEST ICING EVER.  These cookies are pretty awesome and I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to give them a whirl.  My kiddos made sure they ate every crumb then licked every little finger and everything else they could find that was coated with icing which was just about every beater, bowl and spoon in the house not to mention doorknobs, light get the idea.  I am going to start putting this icing on every cookie and cake I make.  Delicious!!

2/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream

Blend together butter and brown sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time; blend well.  Add vanilla; beat until light.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with sour cream; mix well.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto non-stick or lightly greased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack; cool.  Frost with Browned Butter Icing.

1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium high heat until it turns golden.  Watch carefully.  Remove from heat.  Stir in powdered sugar and enough milk to make a spreading consistency (I used a hand mixer).
