This is basically just a buttercream frosting recipe without the added mixing. Works great for decorating sugar cookies.
If you need a good sugar cookie recipe, I have two of them. The first one is more of a crunchy cookie found here https://heartandsoulcooking.com/no-chill-sugar-cookies/ or these are a soft sugar cookie https://heartandsoulcooking.com/soft-sugar-cookies/
Frosting for Sugar Cookies
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (or any flavor you would like. I have used almond and lemon before)
- 1 tbsp milk
Mix all ingredients together until creamy. You may add food coloring if you wish or simply leave it white.
