  1. Place all the ingredients except the vanilla extract in the top of a double boiler (but don't place over boiling water yet.) Add ¼ cup of the burnt sugar syrup. With a small electric mixer, beat ½ minute at low speed. Place pot over boiling water, but don't allow the pan to touch the boiling water. Cook, beating constantly, until the frosting forms stiff peaks, about 7 minutes. Add vanilla. Remove from heat and beat 2 minutes longer. From cooking From Quilt Country by Marcia Adams.
