Almond Butter Icing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by spatchcock

In case you can't tell, I like almonds. You might not need all 5 cups of confectioner's sugar. Just follow your instincts. You want it spreadable, but not too thick.

I was looking for icings, and ran across this one... I thought "almond butter"... you see, almond butter to me is a product in itself... like peanut butter. Just mashed up almonds. I wonder if you substitued almond butter in a peanut butter icing recipe what it would turn out like...
