My mom used to make this often. She has been gone for about 10 years. I always remembered this recipe and managed to save it from her files.
- 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter or margarine
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 6 Tbsp. evaporated milk or cream
- 1 Tbsp. peanut butter (optional)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Confectioner's sugar to thicken
Stir all together and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add enough confectioner's sugar to thicken to desired consistency for spreading. Add 1 tsp. vanilla.
Servings: Enough to frost a 9 x 13 inch cake
Prep Time: 2 Minutes
Cooking Time: 3 Minutes
