  • Buttercream Frosting

    1/3 cup Organic Valley Butter, melted
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups powdered sugar
    2 Organic Valley Egg Whites, beaten (pasteurized)

    In a medium mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to blend the butter and vanilla. Slowly add in the powdered sugar. Mix until creamy.

    In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy and bubbly. Add to butter mixture and beat until creamy, usually 2 to 3 minutes on medium-high speed. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate until use.
    Chef Suggestions
    Place frosting in plastic sandwich or freezer bag, snip off corner and squeeze to frost desserts and pastries. For a thinner glaze, knead while in bag to warm.
    Use other flavor extracts of your choice.

  • I use powdered sugar, room temperature butter and milk, cream all together. I don't have measurements off hand but I think the recipe is from Betty Crocker, oh and add a little vanilla as well. to make chocolate add cocoa powder.

  • 1 stick of butter or margarine
    1 small box of confectioner's sugar
    I always throw in a stick of cream cheese. Not the smallest but the next size......not sure of the oz.
    1 tsp. of vanilla

    Beat the butter and cream cheese together. Add powdered sugar, and vanilla.
    Goes good together with Devil's Food Cake! Yummy!

  • Equal amounts of real butter & Crisco (I use about 1/2 cup of each), 1 pt of heavy whipping cream, and enough powdered sugar to make it as thick as you want (about 2 lbs, give or take - I like it pretty thick). Add any flavorings you want with the whipping cream.
