This butter cream recipe is one I use and stumbled across just through trial and error. I wanted a butter cream that was a little less sweet but with the taste of real butter. I can’t use an all butter recipe because it melts too quickly (hot hands).
I am loyal to certain brands that work for me. I use Kroger Brand butter, shortening, and sugar. These are good quality with a great taste. I use Wilton extracts and flavorings because they are readily available.
