DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan over moderately low heat, melt 1 stick of the butter; continue heating, swirling the pan to prevent burning, until the butter turns nut brown.
  • Transfer the butter to a medium bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer on low speed, gradually blend in the powdered sugar and salt alternately with the milk and vanilla, until the frosting is smooth.
  • Beat in the remaining butter, bit by bit.
  • Refrigerate until mixture is cool and thick enough to spread.
  • Keep frosted cake or cupcakes refridgerated, since the frosting has a tendency to soften and drip off the sides if it gets too warm.
