Dairy-Free Vanilla Frosting
INGREDIENTS

1            cup non-hydrogenated vegetable shortening


2            cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted


1            tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Put the shortening into the Cuisinart®  mixing bowl. Attach the chef’s whisk and begin whisking on Speed 2, increasing up to Speed 5 to cream and make smooth, about 30  seconds.


Scrape the entire bowl and then add the sugar. Start the mixer on Speed 2 and then slowly increase speed to 5 to incorporate the sugar. Scrape the bowl again and then add the vanilla extract and salt. Mix again, increasing up to speed 10 until smooth and fluffy, about 30 seconds.
