  • 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 16 oz confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 tbsp. 2% or whole milk
  • pinch salt


  • Beat butter in bowl of stand mixer with whisk attachment on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. (about 3 minutes)
  • Add vanilla extract.
  • With mixer on low, slowly add in confectioners' sugar, milk, and salt; frequently scrape sides and bottom of bowl.
  • Once incorporated, whip frosting for at least 3 minutes on medium high to high. (My mixer went for 7 minutes)
  • If frosting is too thick to spread, gradually beat in additional milk.
  • Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.
