Burnt Sugar Syrup Buttercream on Oatmeal Cookies
I’m a buttercream fanatic that’s for sure. I love all types and flavors. And when I found myself with leftover Burnt Sugar Syrup from making Black Cake, I couldn’t wait to add it to buttercream. The burnt sugar syrup is so unique in smell and taste. I just love the smokiness that comes from the cooked sugar. I had the best intentions of making a cake and covering it with this Burnt Sugar Syrup Buttercream but I quickly changed my mind when the oatmeal cookies came out of the oven. Just as I imagined, burnt sugar syrup buttercream on oatmeal cookies is a killer combination! You’ll have to think ahead to make this one since the burnt sugar syrup is the key ingredient in this buttercream. It needs to be made and allowed to cool before adding it to the buttercream. Whip up a batch of your favorite oatmeal cookies and your in for a real treat!
