Brown Butter Frosting
Total time: 1 hour 10 min
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 (16-oz.) package powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cook butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 6 to 8 minutes or until butter begins to turn golden brown. Remove pan from heat and pour butter into a medium bowl. Cover and chill 1 hour or until butter is cool and begins to solidify (I tried to do this in the pan and make the icing in it, but I think it overall made it more complicated).
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually add powdered sugar alternately with milk, beginning and ending with powdered sugar. Beat mixture at low speed until well blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Chill until ready to use and bring to room temp for easier spreading.
