What straight buttercream recipe are you using that they do not smear when stacked or simply touched?

I use this buttercream recipe:
1 cup of shortening
1 lb or 4 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of clear vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of butter extract
water for thinning

Is there another recipe I should use to keep the buttercream iced cookies from smearing?

Cali4Dawn,
I would add a tablespoonful of meringue powder to your recipe. That way the icing will crust.

I think you were referring to me. I typed the recipe that I use.

Anyway, I do use meringue powder with that recipe. I knew I was leaving something out.

I've added meringue powder to my icing and it does not get hard enough to not smear. I'm still lost how you keep your buttercream from smearing when stacking your cookies.

I personally havent done many cookies with BC but i do know I have used it. I was in charge of our squadrons childrens Christmas party this past December and the kids decorated sugar cookies with BC and store bought frosting....they were eating the BC and using the other for their cookies...most of them said it was too good to put on a cookies when their mouths held more...... I had to laugh!
