Love this Frosting!!! Perfect!! I had a cookie frosting party at my home with my son and my nieces and nephews. This was easy to spread and was so Yummy!! I did not want to use a recipie that had shortning in it, its always so waxy and bland when you use shortning. This is so creamy and tasty!
I also found a new teqnique for decorating frosted cookies. I used to buy colored sugars to decorate with but they are so expensive! I searched on the web and found out how to make my own, and it is so easy! All you do is take granulated sugar, (I used 1/2 cup), put it in a ziplock sandwich size baggie, add a few drops of food coloring, let out some air, then seal the bag and mash it , shake it, mash some more, until the desired color is achieved! You have to mash it around alot to press the color in. I had made a bag of every color of the rainbow! It was fun and easy, and our cookies look like the nothern lights! Very vibrant and full of colors! The kids were so happy to have more then just red & green this year, and it was so easy to make!
I have been looking hi & lo for a good cookie frosting recipe to go with my favorite cookie recipe and I have found it!! Taste is fabulous, texture is great and very easy to work with - sets up enough that cookies can be stored without a mess. I did use every bit of the 1/2 cup of whipping cream and could have used a little more even. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
Does anyone know if you can make this frosting ahead of time?
I have been using this recipe for the past couple of years now and it is the best sugar cookie frosting! I try to use the whipping cream, but if I don't have it, milk works fine too.
This is awesome, spreads very easily and hardens up so you can stack cookies without the mess. Thanks for sharing this
This is the best sugar cookie frosting because it tastes great and is easy to spread on the cookies. I loved it! Thanks for posting
I have a fabulous go to recipe I always use that calls for half shortening, half butter, and milk, but I was out of shortening and milk so I thought this recipe would be perfect, boy was I wrong. I desperately WANTED to like this frosting, but unfortunately myself and my family did not like it at all. I followed the recipe exactly and to be blunt, the taste was quite unsatisfactory.
Perfect - just like my grandma makes!
I just made this frosting today and it tastes absolutely delicious! It was a bit thick so in a separate bowl I took another 1/4 cup of whipping cream and whisked it until it was fluffy and added to the frosting. It still had some thickness to it ,but it was a little more manageable.Im glad I found this recipe :D thanks!
