"Light almond flavored icing, great for sugar and butter cookies. You may need as little as 4 cups of confectioners' sugar; just stop adding it when you've reached the desired consistency."

Great "road map" of a buttercream recipe, easily manipulated to accomodate any and all of your buttercream needs whether it's for cookies, cupcakes, or decorating. Thicker, thinner, more butter...

Not only good on cookies, but great on special occasion cakes. Make it al little stiff and you can create decorative flowers and borders with this recipe. Linda Carver-Hereford,Texas

I didn't really use shortening.. I just cut it out of the recipe and used whipping cream instead of milk.. it worked really good..
