I think this my family’s new favorite frosting. It goes with anything … or should I say, makes anything even better? Real lemon juice and zest make this recipe something special. Don’t skimp for the best flavor!
Lemon Buttercream Frosting
Cream the Buttery Sticks and the sifted confectioner’s sugar in a large bowl, adding the sugar 3/4 cup at a time to allow time to be incorporated. Slowly add the non-dairy milk, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Whip 1-2 minutes until fluffy, then stir in the zest. (Frostings like this work best if you have a whisk attachment on a stand-mixer like a KitchenAid. However, a handmixer will do, just be sure to add extra time for whipping at the end of the recipe.)
Makes approximately 4 cups of frosting.
