Peanut Butter: Opt for a high-quality, creamy or chunky peanut butter to infuse the frosting with a rich and nutty flavor.
Vanilla Extract: You can use vanilla extract or my favorite vanilla bean paste.
Unsalted Butter: Butter adds a luxurious creaminess to the frosting, enhancing its texture and taste.
Powdered Sugar: The sweetness and fine texture of powdered sugar are crucial for achieving the desired consistency.
Vanilla Extract:A splash of vanilla extract adds a layer of warmth and depth to the frosting, balancing the sweetness.
Steps to Create Peanut Butter Cookie Frosting:
Creaming the Butter and Sugars:
In a mixing bowl, combine softened unsalted butter and the brown sugar. Beat them together until smooth and well incorporated.
Add the Peanut Butter:
Incorporate the peanut butter and a teaspoon of vanilla extract into the mixture, blending it to enhance the overall flavor.
Gradual Addition of Powdered Sugar:
Begin adding powdered sugar gradually, ensuring a smooth consistency. The amount can be adjusted based on your desired sweetness.
Add the Peanut Butter Cookie Mix:
Next add the peanut butter cookie mix and cream to combine.
Adjusting Consistency with Milk or Cream:
If the frosting is too thick, add a small amount of milk or cream to achieve a spreadable consistency. Conversely, if it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.
Whipping to Fluffiness:
Whip the frosting for an additional few minutes until it becomes light, fluffy, and irresistibly smooth.
