A few weeks ago, (I am in fact that far behind on blogging) I stumbled upon these beautiful golden raspberries. I placed them in my basket and took them home, hoping to make something delicious with them. Because raspberries that pretty should not simply be eaten.
Ha. Tell that to my sweet little Nora. See images below.

Cook butter in heavy small saucepan over medium heat until deep nutty brown (do not burn), stirring often, about 6 minutes. Immediately pour browned butter into glass measuring cup. Gradually whisk browned butter into sugar-egg mixture; whisk until well blended.
