Glaze

A thin, glossy coating on a food. There are numerous types of glazes. A mixture of powdered sugar and milk can be drizzled on cookies, cakes, and breads for a glaze. A fruit sauce can serve as a glaze for ham; a mixture of brown sugar and butter makes a glaze for vegetables; and melted jelly can be used as a dessert glaze. Sometimes breads and pastries are brushed with a glaze of egg and water before baking to give them a shiny surface.

I've taken about 1 cup and put it on the side there because we can serve that with
