This Brown Butter Pumpkin Spice Frosting makes the perfect frosting for all of your Fall baked desserts! It's even delicious on crackers and right from a spoon.
- 3 sticks unsalted butter divided
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 2 pound bag powdered sugar plus 2 cups
Place 2 sticks of butter into a small saucepan over medium low heat. Once butter is melted, swirl pan occasionally checking color. Once butter is browned, it will smell nutty and be a deep golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool completely to room temperature.
