Buttercream Frosting

Buttercream Frosting

I have been using this recipe for years.  It is a great buttercream frosting with a light and airy texture.

BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

INGREDIENTS: 

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

3-4 cups confectioner sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Up to 4 tablespoons milk

 

DIRECTIONS:

Beat the softened butter for 2 minutes with the whisk attachment of a stand mixer.

Turn the mixer on lowest speed and add 3 cups of confectioner sugar

When the mix is blended, turn to medium speed,  add vanilla, salt and 2 tablespoons milk, beat for 3 minutes

Add the remaining sugar or milk as needed.  I did add all the sugar and milk to my mix.

 

Tips- do not microwave your butter, soften to room temperature. 

You may want to beat the mix for a few minutes until it incorporates.  I mixed it for about 3-4 extra minutes just to get the perfect taste and texture

 

Enjoy!!!
