The Best Buttercream Frosting Recipe!



In my opinion, this is the best butter cream frosting I've ever had.  It is a great recipe for icing cookies or frosting cakes.  You can even add a package of cream cheese to it (and additional powdered sugar as needed) for cream cheese frosting.

This frosting freezes great! So feel free to double this recipe and keep it on hand for when you need it. If you double it just add a bit more half and half or milk as needed. 

You can even change this to chocolate frosting.  Just add 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa and additional cream or milk. 

This recipe makes approx. 3 cups of buttercream frosting

Ingredients
1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco (I use the sticks)
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter - room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (if making white frosting use CLEAR vanilla extract)
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approx.1 lb.)
2 tablespoons half and half  (you can substitute regular milk or heavy cream).
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Directions:
In large bowl, mix the shortening, butter, vanilla, milk and salt with an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating well on medium speed. When all sugar has been mixed in, continue to beat the frosting until it is light and fluffy. Add additional milk as needed to get the consistency you need.
