This Sugar Cookie Frosting recipe is very simple to make and the perfect pair to your favorite cookies!


  • 3 tablespoonsof butter, softened (vegan as desired)
  • 2 cupsof powdered sugar
  • 2汤匙of milk (any milk including plant milks will work!)
  • 1/4 teaspoonof vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoonof almond extract*
  • food coloring as desired (I used about 2 crops of red to get a pale pink frosting)


  1. Make the frosting by combining the butter and half of the powdered sugar in a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer) until just combined.
  2. Add the remaining powdered sugar as well as the milk, vanilla, almond extract, and food coloring. Continue to whisk until it reaches your desired consistency (about 1-2 minutes).
  3. Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge.


*As desired, you could leave out the almond extract and simply add in double the vanilla
