Buttercream Frosting

The best basic frosting couldn’t be easier. It’s perfect for Butter Cookies, cakes, or cupcakes, and takes just a few minutes to make (plus a half hour or so for the butter to come to room temperature before beginning.) You can add food coloring for variety, or shortening for extra decorating stiffness. You’ll find a printer-friendly version of the recipe at the bottom of this page.

Ingredients:

0 bf

½ cup softened butter (1 stick)

1 tsp vanilla

⅛ tsp salt

1 lb. confectioner’s sugar (1 box)

3 – 4 Tbsp milk (any kind)

Preparation:

1.) Cream butter and vanilla.

2.) Add salt, then gradually add confectioner’s sugar.

3.) Stir in milk, to desired consistency.
