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 your kitchen aid (or other mixer) combine butter, shortening, and powdered sugar. Beat until creamy. Add almond extract and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Add water and mix until light and fluffy. Add desired food coloring.
I use this frosting for EVERYTHING! Cakes, Cupcakes, Cookies, Graham crackers, etc. The almond extract gives it a unique and wonderful flavor. Enjoy!
**Great with my homemade soft sugar cookie recipe***
