Step 1

In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or using an electric hand mixer whip the butter until light and creamy for about 7-8 minutes on medium/high speed.

Once the butter is pale in color and light slowly add in the icing sugar one spoon at a time at medium speed. Let the sugar fully incorporate before adding in more sugar.

Step 3

Add the vanilla extract, vanilla bean seeds, salt, and cream or milk.

Step 4

Whip on high speed for another 3-4 minutes until very light, creamy, and fluffy.
