DIRECTIONS

  • Beat the cream cheese, butter and crisco on medium or high speed for 1 minute or until light and fluffy. Add extracts and flavorings and 3 tablespoons of milk, beat on medium speed until combined. Gradually add the powdered sugar in about six different intervals and beat until well combined between intervals, using a rubber scraper to make sure all ingredients are incorporated. Beat on high speed for approximately 1 minute to increase the volume. Frosting will be light and fluffy, you may need to add up to 1 tablespoons of milk for desired consistency. I usually add up to 1 teaspoons extra of one of the extracts if I am going to use the frosting for use in a decorating bag. I just prefer the flavoring instead of the extra milk.
  • If you are going to use this as a colored decorator frosting I've found that adding the gel colors when you add the extracts and milk seems to work the best.
