This is in response to a request. it is the frosting that she uses on her Paige's Sour Cream Cut out Cookies.


  1. Cream together sugar and the butter.
  2. Add the vanilla.
  3. Add the milk and beat on a medium speed until it is a spreading consistency.
  4. If needed add additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  5. Tint with food coloring pastes-- be cautious, a little goes a long way.

This is a great basic frosting recipe. Good for making birthday cakes with really sweet icing. Since my daughter is allergic to milk, I substituted Rich's whip. It was very creamy and smooth.

The perfect compliment to Paige's Sour Cream Cut-Out Cookies! I added a dash of salt to cut the sweetness and used a bit more milk to make the consistancy a little easier to spread. We had plenty of frosting to decorate 3 dozen cookies in four different colors. Thanks, taylortwo, for a great combination!
