Our Easy Sugar Cookie Frosting is buttery, smooth and creamy, and perfect for sugar cookies! We've been using this frosting for over 30 years and everyone goes crazy over it. It also has just 4 ingredients and whips up in minutes.
Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20-22
  • 1 pound powered sugar (3¾ cups)
  • ½ cup butter, slightly melted
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a mixing bowl with the whipping attachment, or beaters, combine the ingredients well. Then whip, or beat, for an additional minute or two, or until it's extra smooth and creamy.
  2. Using the back of a spoon, spread the frosting on cookies in a swirled pattern. Allow the frosted cookies to set for approximately an hour, or longer, before storing in an airtight container.
When storing cookies, lay sheets of wax or parchment paper between layers, so the cookies don't stick together.

This frosting also freezes well.
