Ingredients

  • 7 Tablespoons soft butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon rose water

Directions

Over a pot of simmering water, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a metal mixing bowl until they are lighter in color and texture and the sugar is fully dissolved. Add the milk and continue to whisk. Remove from the heat and whisk to combine. When the mixture returns to room temperature, add the vanilla and rose water. Whisk in the butter in 3 batches and stir until it’s smooth in texture and fully combined. Use as icing for cakes or cupcakes or as the filling of a macaron or cookie sandwich.

Butter Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Butter Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
