You now can actually still buy the butternut flavoring, from Superior Flavoring Company!!!! Hope this will help you !!!!! Sheila

I love this frosting. It is my all time favorite. It is the recipe that was on the Superior Butternut flavoring bottle WAY BACK! It was my Granny's recipe too. ;) It is so good! I was checking to see if it was posted here before I posted it because I just found my copy of it. I can't find "Butternut" flavoring now, but use Butter and Nut which is not quiet the same but still pretty good.
