The Best Buttercreme Frosting.

Got this recipe from my friend Jenny.  So delish, very light and fluffy, but you can still make a killer swirl with it.  My new favorite.  It's on a graham cracker because after my extensive hunt for delicious frosting recipes, I had baked my share of cookies and cupcakes to try them out on.

Quick Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (From

Serves : 10-12 servings

3 c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter (at room temperature)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 to 2 Tb. whipping cream

In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended, and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.

Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed, for spreading consistency.

You may also add a dash of cinnamon, lemon juice, candy flavoring, or chocolate.

Frosting lovers, enjoy.
