**This recipe can also be easily doubled and frozen- I always have a batch in the freezer!


It is also versatile and can be added to/ changed to make:


-Chocolate buttercream frosting (replace 1/2 cup of pwdr. sugar with cocoa),


-Lemon (replace milk with lemon juice and add 1 Tsp. lemon peel),


-Peanut Butter (1/2 Cup peanut butter instead of regular butter)


-Peppermint (Replace Vanilla ext. with peppermint)
