Icing is simple, easy, and oh-so-yummy. Sometimes, icing isn’t so simple, so easy, or oh-so-yummy. That’s when experimenting comes in. When there is that strong urge to find that perfect icing; that icing that will change the world.
So with all of this inspiring and emotional talk about icing going on, I go into the kitchen, pull out some ingredients, and hope to change the world, one ingredient at a time. And I ended up with a pretty basic recipe, almost too basic. Basic enough that I’m not seeing any flying air planes or jets with bold words on a flying canvas stating, “Life-changing, amazing vanilla icing!”. But that’s okay.
Here’s the recipe without planes or jets:
PERFECT VANILLA ICING
2 c. powdered sugar
Dash of salt
2 -4 Tbs. milk
1-2 Tbs. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
How to Consume Properly:
1. Combine the powdered sugar and salt in a bowl.
2. Pour the milk in one tablespoon at a time until it’s slightly thick; thick enough that more liquid could be added.
3. Add the melted butter and vanilla, mixing well. If it’s still too thick, add more milk. If you added too much liquids, add some powdered sugar to thicken it up.
Enjoy with graham crackers, on cakes or cookies, or with a finger and a lick.
VARIATION: Substitute the vanilla with almond exctract. Or, for a vanilla and almond icing, substitute half of the teaspoon of vanilla with almond.
