This is week two and I didn’t get any questions from last week. So, please email or send in comments and questions.
My next favorite food item in the fall is pumpkin, and one thing that tastes the most amazing on pumpkin is Burnt Butter Frosting. When you brown butter, even before you put it together with your frosting, it does something that is so delicious. The butter solids, which would be the fat solids in the butter, brown and take on the incredible taste of caramel or toffee. It’s heavenly!
If don’t believe it you’ll just have to try it for yourself. It will make any of your pumpkin bars, cookies, jelly rolls, and cakes taste like nothing you have ever had before. So here is the recipe of a frosting you and your family will love. When you try it you will capture a little taste of why fall is so amazing.
Burnt Butter Frosting
4 cups powder sugar
½ cup butter
1/4 cup cream cheese
5 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
Using a small pan add butter, cook over medium heat until the milk solids have turned brown in color, then remove from heat. Using an electric mixer whip the cream cheese, vanilla, and powder sugar while slowly incorporating the browned butter. Add milk to get your desired thickness. Spread over anything pumpkin or just sit and eat.
