Shortbread cookies are one of my favorites & sometimes I add a few chocolate chips to change it up a bit!

3/4 cup real butter (softened)

1 3/4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

chocolate chips (optional)

 

Directions – 

Cream butter & sugar together until fully combined. Add vanilaa

Slowly add flour.

Stir in chocolate chips or split the batch – 1/2 with chocolate & 1/2 without!

Bake for 10-13 at 350 degrees depending on altitude.

Thanks for stopping!

Buttercream Frosting

I love making buttercream & I love eating it too! I always start with a basic recipe then I add a little more of vanilla and a little more of milk, and a little more powdered sugar until it’s perfect….. for my taste, that day. 😉

 

To frost about 12 cupcakes:

1 stick of butter – real butter

2-3 cups of powdered sugar

1-2 tblsp. milk

1 tsp. vanilla

Combine butter, 1 cup of powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tblsp. of milk. Mix for 1-2 minutes then gradually add more powdered sugar until reached consistency. Peaks should form so the frosting holds its shape.

If frosting is too thick, add a little more milk. Too thin, add more powdered sugar.

I use Wilton tip 1M
