Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray; set aside.

  2. Add butter to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stirring frequently, allow butter to melt. Continue cooking butter until it begins to foam. Cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more or until butter turns golden brown and begins to smell nutty. Remove from heat. Pour into a small bowl. Cool.
