Trailmix Oatmeal Cookies w/brown butter icing

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I always buy trailmix to munch on. So as a request to make oatmeal cookies I couldnt decide on nuts or raisins, so I thought a mix would be perfect. The trailmix has three different nuts raisins and chocolate! To add to them I found this recipe for brown butter icing from Paula Deen. Very tastey, makes a different kind of oatmeal cookie that is everybodies fav now!!
