Erika's Favorite Butter Cream Frosting

3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. shortening
4 2/3 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. water

In a large mixer bowl combine butter, shortening and sugar, and beat until very creamy. Add almond extract and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Add water and mix until light.

This is one of my favorite Butter Cream Frosting recipes. It's from the lion house. I know it has a lot of butter and shortening, but it's worth every little fattening morsel! I LOVE almond extract in my frosting, it gives it a little burst of flavor!

*This makes a lot of frosting, if you have left overs, frost cookies, or frost graham crackers
