Directions

  1. Heat butter, stirring constantly, in a saucepan over medium-low heat until it browns and becomes very aromatic, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk confectioners' sugar into butter until dissolved and remove saucepan from heat; stir in milk and vanilla extract.
  2. Beat butter mixture using an electric mixer until frosting is smooth; add more milk if frosting is too thick.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Make sure to stir butter continuously while heating and be very careful to not burn the butter - if you do, start over again with new butter.
  • If you are not using the frosting immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate so it does not dry out.
