Vanilla Pudding Sugar Cookie Icing

Vanilla Pudding Icing

¼ cup cold milk

3 TBL instant vanilla pudding mix

¼ cup butter, softened

2 ½ cups powedered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine milk and pudding mix until smooth; set aside.

 In a mixing bowl; cream butter and beat in pudding mixture. Gradually add powdered sugar, vanilla and any food coloring. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy.

 I used a simple Betty Crocker sugar cookie bag mix. I used the recipe for cut out cookies, and used my angle cookie cutter.

Keira (5) thought they were leaves. How do I keep them from fattening up?! They're so much prettier above! The icing turns out a bit yellow from the pudding, so you may want to use food coloring if you want a different color. I topped mine with some sugar crystals. Not the most perfect thing to look at, but good! Kids loved them!

On a personal note, today I"m 16 weeks! I've been sick and coughing a ton this past week, but I had my 4 month apt. today and everything seems to be going well. More on my other blog
