Butter Cream Frosting

We are frosting snobs in our house. I don't think my mother EVER purchased a can of frosting as long as I can remember. I find the canned stuff an offensive knock-off. Making your own frosting...from so simple. Here is the recipe we use.- BarbaraJo

Butter Cream Frosting 

1/2 cup softened butter (yes, the real thing)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 TBS of milk
1 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt

Cream all these ingredients together. If you like your frosting a bit thicker, don't add as much milk. If you need it thinner, add more milk. So simple.
**You can also add a 1/3 cup of cocoa powder and you have CHOCOLATE frosting. Or substitute the tsp. vanilla for peppermint extract and you have MINT frosting.
