Melt butter in medium saucepan.

Add brown sugar and cream.

Cook on medium heat for two minutes. Sugar should be completely dissolved.

Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Transfer to larger bowl.

With a handheld mixer, add sugar (a bit at a time) until totally smooth.  If frosting is overly thick, it is possible to add more heavy cream to achieve spreadable consistency.

Spread over dessert and allow to set before serving.
