Actually, I have used this recipe for years. I just checked the website because I could not locate my copy. It is just the right amount of sweetness. I use it for filling for my cakes and whoopie pies. Best kept refrigerated until ready to eat. Melts in your mouth. Best ever.

I have been making this recipe for years with one addition. I decrease the butter to a half a cup and add a quarter cup of solid Crisco. I like it better that way because it fluffs up a little more.
