  • 1 cup (120g) powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon milk or cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, beat softened butter until light and fluffy, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of milk or cream, vanilla extract, and salt.

  2. Beat until smooth. Add up to 2 additional teaspoons of milk until frosting reaches your desired consistency.

Recipe Notes

To substitute vanilla bean for extract, use 1/2 to 1 inch of vanilla bean, to taste. For paste, follow the substitution guidelines on the jar, as it varies from product to product.
