Burnt Butter Frosting

This picture does not do  justice to the amazing-ness of this frosting.  It is SO good!  Seriously.  A friend of mine made this once and I loved it somuch I went on the hunt.  I found it at my favorite recipe site http://www.allrecipes.com/. It's great with yellow cake or spice cake or carrot cake or pumpkin cake...you get the idea.  Or you can just eat it straight out of the bowl--whatever.  Try it!  Just don't substitute margerine, real butter is the only option here!

Burnt Butter Frosting
1/2 c. butter
4 c. powdered sugar
4 Tb milk
1 tsp vanilla

Cook the butter in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir constantly until the butter is tan. If it gets dark brown or black you have allowed it to burn too long (and it can turn fast!). When butter has been "burned" remove the saucepan from the heat.  Mix in powdered sugar in batches with a hand mixer on medium speed.  Then stir in the vanilla and the milk.  Spread the frosting immediately because it will set up quickly.  Enjoy!!
