"This makes a somewhat stiff frosting that tastes a bit like toffee and is perfect for covering fall desserts. From apple cakes to pumpkin cookies to cranberry-walnut cupcakes, this is my go-to frosting to capture the flavors of my favorite season. I like to top it with chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Be warned, however, that it's extremely sweet, so it's best paired with low-sugar baked goods. A little goes a long way."

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup; stir frequently until sugar is melted. Add milk and stir frequently it comes to a boil. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly, 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Add powdered sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon maple syrup to the cooled mixture; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread frosting while it's still warm for best results.
