CRUSTING BUTTERCREAM FOR COOKIES
Beat butter (5tbsp, melted and cooled), powdered sugar ( 3cups and 1/2 cup), milk or water (5-7 tablespoons) until smooth. Beat in Vanilla extract I(1teaspoon). Store frosting in airtight container to prevent crusting. Frosting won't crust hard like royal icing, it crusts on the surface.
1. CAN I USE VEGAN BUTTER? Yes, absolutely.
2. CAN I USE OTHER FLAVORINGS? Absolutely. My favorite to use are Vanilla, Almond and Lemon.
3. HOW LONG DOES THE BUTTERCREAM KEEP? About a week, stored in the fridge.
4. CAN DECORATED COOKIES BE STACKED? Allow buttercream to crust and harden a bit, then you can stock them.
