Buttercream Frosting For Decorating
A big batch of this will make your cookies that much more amazing!
- 2 cups salted butter softened
- 2 pounds of powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup whipping cream does not have to be heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp. real vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp. salt
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whip attached beat butter until creamy. Add powdered sugar and beat on slow speed until incorporated. This is a good time to use a shield or throw a towel over the mixer.
Add the cream, vanilla and salt. Beat on low speed until combined and then beat on medium-high speed for two - three minutes. The frosting will be fluffy and light. Taste for salt and vanilla if desired.
Use at room temperature to frost cookies by spreading or piping.
Leftovers can be saved in the fridge for a month of frozen for long term storage. This stuff is always great to have around!
