Easy Penuche Icing


1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup milk
1-3/4 to 2 cups sifted powdered sugar


Melt butter in a saucepan.  Add brown sugar and milk.  Boil over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Cool to lukewarm.  Gradually add powdered sugar.  Beat until thick enough to spread.  If icing becomes too stiff, add a little water.  


This is a wonderful homemade icing recipe from Todd's great-grandmother Ola (Viola Gares).  She always spread this icing over white angel food cake, sometimes made with crushed black walnuts.
