Keep this recipe for our favorite cookie frosting handy! It's simple but oh-so-delicious. Leave the frosting white or tint it with food coloring if desired.

How to Make It

Step 1

In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter until very smooth. Add powdered sugar, 3 tbsp. half-and-half, and the vanilla and beat until very smooth. For a thinner frosting or a glaze, add more half-and-half. Tint with food coloring if you like.

Step 2
