Quick Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Update 4/12/14

I have no clue where this recipe came from (if you recognize it from anywhere, let me know!), but it's my go-to for buttercream frosting :]

What you need:
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter, slightly softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tbsp. Cool Whip
  1. In a stand mixer with whisk attachment, mix butter and sugar together on low speed until well blended. Then increase the speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes.
  2. Add vanilla and Cool Whip; continue to beat for another minute at medium speed.
  3. *If needed, add more Cool Whip until it's a spreading consistency.
