Confectioners' Sugar Icing II

Servings: Makes a scant 1/2 cup
This is a vaiation on the other "confectioners' sugar" icing recipe on this website. This one uses water instead of milk or orange juice.

4 tbsp. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 tbsp. water
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the butter and water until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and let stand until cool, about 5 minutes.

Add the sugar to the butter mixture and whisk vigorously until smooth and thickened, about 1 minute. Use the icing within 5 minutes or it may become too thick to drizzle. If the icing does become too thick, rewarm it for 2 or 3 seconds over low heat, whisking constantly.

Makes a scant 1/2 cup.
