Brown-Sugar Boiled Icing

  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
Boil the sugar and the water until it threads of forms a fairly hard ball when tried in cold water. Beat the egg whites until stiff, adding a pinch of cream of tartar while beating. Pour the hot syrup over the egg whites and continue beating. Flavor with vanilla if your little heart desires. Beat until stiff enough to spread, and if your little heart desires, cook over boiling water as described for boiled white icing.
