Almond Frosting

Almond Frosting

My GO-TO Family Favorite Frosting! I use this on brownies, cookies, occasionally cakes AND my family’s all-time favorite graham crackers!!!! This recipe makes an ideal buttercream for frosting cakes and decorating them with borders. I really like using my stand mixer for this recipe, it makes it easier and your hands are free to add ingredients a little at a time.

2 Cups Shortening
8 Cups Confectioners’ Sugar
2 Teaspoons Almond Extract
6 Ounces Heavy Cream or (Milk may be used)
Food Coloring

Using a mixer cream shortening until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar 1 cup at a time and continue mixing until well blended. Add almond extract, food coloring and whipping cream – adding the whipping cream/milk small amounts at a time while mixing on low speed until moistened. Additional whipping cream/milk may be added if necessary. Beat at high speed until frosting is nice and fluffy.

NOTES: Frosting is a funny recipe to make – sometimes I have to add more confectioners’ sugar, milk and flavoring – just depends on how it mixes that day. I would just add small amounts at a time while mixing.
