This is my favorite cookie frosting recipe. It is not overly sweet it really simple to whip up. I love this frosting because it sets slightly so you can stack your cookies. The cookie frosting also colors nicely because it is pure white.
The kids loved picking out colors and decorating cookies. It kept them quiet and happy for almost and hour!
This recipe yields about 2 cups of frosting which is more than enough for about 2-3 dozen sugar cookies or more.
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 2-3 Tbs milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2-3 cup powdered sugar
Cream shortening, butter, and 2 cups of sugar.
Add in 2 Tbs of milk and vanilla and continue whipping.
Add additional milk or powdered sugar until desired.
Continue whipping until the frosting is smooth and fluffy.
Color if desired, frost cookies and allow to set a few hours before stacking.
