3/4 Milk
1 teas. Vanilla
nOW MY QUESTIONS ARE hOW LONG DO YOU COOK IT FOR IT TO GET A LITTLE STICKY. i REMEMBER MY MOTHER ALWAYS PUT THE SUTFF IN A KETTLE AND SHE WOULD STIR AND STIR IT while cooking it. But I do not know for how long. The family really really likes it and I would really truly love to duplicate. Thanks in advance.

There is a brown sugar icing in Joy of Cooking that uses:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
5 TBS cream
2 Tsp butter
1/8 Tsp salt
They say to cook slowly and stir, bringing it to a boil. Take it off
the heat and add the vanilla. You then beat it to spreading consistency.
I made a different icing with cream and maple syrup which I boiled down
for around 20 minutes, constantly stirring. It coated the back of the spoon
and thicken a bit as it cooled. I added pecans and spread it on top of a
pumpkin cheesecake. I guess it depends on what kind of icing you want whether
to whip it or not. Hope this helps.
