Author Notes: We're making pineapple cookies and we're showing you the best way to frost them! —Eden Passante
Makes: 6 cookies
Sticks Butter, room temperature
cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
cups Sifted powdered sugar
tablespoons Whole Milk
teaspoons pineapple extract
Yellow and green food coloring
- Whip the butter and shortening until they’re smooth.
- Add in the sugar, 2 cups at a time and continue to beat.
- Add in the milk in between alternating with the sugar. Beat on high until the frosting is fluffy. You want it to be thick, but not too thick where it won’t pipe smoothly.
- Divide the frosting up into 2 bowls to add food coloring to each of them. We used a tiny bit of gel food coloring to get the desired green and yellow we wanted.
- Put the frosting in a piping bag with the leaf tip and get frosting!
