DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over med-low heat.
  • Add brown sugar and stir constantly with wooden spoon.
  • After 2-3mins, sugar will melt and mixture will become smooth, then begin to bubble (it's ok if it looks separated at this point).
  • Once this happens, stir constantly for 2mins (less if sugar smells like it's burning).
  • Carefully add cream and stir for another 2mins.
  • Mixture will thicken slightly and look smooth and glossy.
  • Remove pan from heat and let cool for 5mins, stirring frequently.
  • Beat in confectioners' sugar and vanilla with wooden spoon.
  • If frosting seems a bit dry, add more cream, 1/2 tablespoon at a time, until thick, smooth and spreadable.
