Cinnamon Apple Buttercream Frosting

Apple Spice Drops

This rich and creamy frosting is intensly sweet and has just a hint of fruity apple and spicy cinnamon flavors. It's a great topping for a variety of apple flavored cakes, cookies, and muffins.

This recipe is adapted from the apple spice drop recipe found in Taste of Home Cookies:

Cinnamon Apple Buttercream Frosting

1/4 c butter (room temperature)
3 c (345 g) powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp apple juice (room temperature)

1. In a medium bowl, beat together all ingredients until smooth.

I have an apple-ginger cookie without an icing, and I've used this icing for it twice now. Love, and thank you for posting!
