Creamy Vanilla Frosting..." the Best"

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Boyz 5

This frosting spreads and pipes smoothly. Make sure the butter is really soft so the frosting won't split when tinted. Please be sure to use real butter as you may not get ideal results if using substitutions. This frosting can be made ahead. Just cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours; allowing to come to room temperature and beat until smooth before using.

This makes a wonderfully smooth and creamy frosting. I used it to frost Soft Buttermilk Cookies (Recipe 122919). I was trying to approximate Lofthouse Cookies, because my husband loves them and they are so expensive. He gave this frosting a total thumbs up!! Thanks!
