Cook butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 6 to 8 minutes or until butter begins to turn golden brown. Remove pan from heat immediately, and pour butter into a small bowl. Cover and chill 1 hour or until butter is cool and begins to solidify.
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually add powdered sugar alternately with milk, beginning and ending with powdered sugar. Beat mixture at low speed until well blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

This was so good! I used it for Cinnamon Rolls. Out of 3 dozen, NONE of them are left. My family LOVED the taste of this Frosting. It's creamy, nutty, and sweet all wrapped in one little package! Thank you!
