Tasty Tuesday: Strawberry Frosting

Last weekend I was in a real jam - I was all out of frosting and needed to bring a cake over for a birthday party. Lucky, I had just that - jam! Here is a simple recipe for a Strawberry Jam Butter Cream Frosting, perfect for cakes, cupcakes, graham crackers, and more! Thanks Laura for the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
5-6 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Red Barn Strawberry jam
red food coloring (enough to make it a pretty pink color)

Place butter and jam in a mixing bowl or an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and cream until well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Add powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until you reach desired consistency. If frosting gets too thick you can add a little milk to thin it out. Put on your favorite treat, pictured above is Devil's Food Cake cupcakes.

*If you decide to use a different brand of jam, it must be smooth, like The Red Barn's or it will not turn out correctly.
