Why I Love This Recipe

I call this icing cause it isn't really cooked and it's made with powdered sugar like royal icing.

This is great on an Oatmeal Cake.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/3 cup Unsalted Butter
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
5 tsp Whole Milk
Pinch of Kosher Salt


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and continue to heat until butter turn a delicate brown color.

Remove from heat and stir in the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.
