  • 3/4 cup (12 Tbsp; 170g) unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 cups (360g) confectioners’ sugar

  • 3 Tablespoons (45ml) heavy cream, half-and-half, or whole milk, at room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • salt, to taste

Instructions:


  • With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute.

  • Add the confectioners’ sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then increase to medium-high speed and beat for 2 full minutes.
