Butter Cream Frosting

Change the color with food coloring

Ingredients

1 cup Butter-Flavored or Golden Crisco ( solid vegetable shortening )
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 fluid ounces heavy cream
gel or paste food coloring (optional)


Method

Cream shortening until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and continue creaming until well blended. Add salt, vanilla, and cream. Blend on low speed until moistened. Add additional cream a teaspoon at a time if necessary to achieve the right consistency. Beat at high speed until frosting is fluffy. If desired, divide frosting into several small bowls and stir in food coloring to create various colors of buttercream frosting.

Variations:
For a pure white frosting, use white shortening and clear vanilla.
For a whiter colored frosting that uses real butter but still holds up well at room temperature, use 1/2 cup white shortening and 1/2 cup unsalted butter.

Great recipe. It took months for me to get the smell of buttercream icing out of my nose when I took the Wilton Cake decorating class.

Oh, thanks for posting this!! I've been looking for a good, "tried and true" buttercream frosting recipe for ages. I've tried several but nothing that worked quite right!
