Powdered Sugar Frosting

1 Dec


One tbsp. butter (softened)
2 cups powdered sugar
Add milk until consistency is right
1 tsp. vanilla*

This is a simple, go-to frosting recipe. If it’s too thin, add more sugar, if it’s too thick, add milk.
(I’ve use food coloring for these bowls.)

*Note that this isn’t one of those recipes where we add extra vanilla “just because” – the flavor takes well and can be too strong if you’re not careful.

**As you might expect, then, this frosting takes well with other flavors. Depending on what flavoring you are using, you might want to leave the vanilla out.
