Additional Information

Step 1

Cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 2

Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Re-whip before using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fluffy and creamy not overpowering I've made this twice now and oh my goodness amazing. The second time I used butter flavored shortening and I liked it a little better than the plain shortening. Oh so delicious

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Birthday cake for a VERY picky son Every January I make my son his favorite cake of German chocolate and peanut butter frosting. I was never thrilled with the frosting, It didn't seem like it had enough peanut butter flavor. This year I wanted to try something different. I found this recipe, read the reviews, and figured i'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. I made no changes, just followed the recipe. I will be using this peanut butter frosting from now on. I used all 6 tbs of milk, we like our frosting creamy and that is was. Thank you, Mamma D.
