This is by far the best frosting I've ever used on my sugar cookies for the holidays. So easy, but the frosting is always the star!

How to Make Sugar Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Step-by-Step

  • 1Beat together the butter and extracts. Start adding in the powdered sugar a little at a time, beating after each addition until you get the desired texture. (if you add too much sugar, a little milk can be added)
  • 2If desired, add food coloring and blend well. Split frosting into different bowls to make a variety of colors, or just keep it a clean white.
  • 3Apply how you would like to, either with a spatula or a piping bag. If you don't have a piping bag, but would like the effect, clip a small corner off a ziploc bag to use as a piping bag. Don't use generic bags for this, though, as it could burst open at the seam.
