Perfect American Buttercream Recipe
Recipe by Chelsey White
2 sticks country crock buttery sticks, unsalted
4 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp heavy cream
1 ½ tsp vanilla
In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, beat the buttery sticks on a medium speed for 30 seconds until smooth. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Alternate with small splashes of cream.
Once fully mixed, add in the vanilla and salt, and beat on low until the ingredients are fully incorporated, and the desired consistency is reached. If the frosting is too thick, add in additional cream (1 teaspoon at a time). If the frosting is too thin, add in more powdered sugar (quarter of a cup at a time).
