Brandy Butter

Brandy butter is a delicious brandy-infused icing, used to top yummy seasonal treats like mincemeat pies and plum puddings. You can whip a batch of these quickly and it keeps for over a week.

4 oz unsalted butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoon brandy

Beat butter and sugar in a mixer until fluffy. Add brandy and beat until incorporated.

If the mixture seizes up when you add the brandy in, add a little bit more sugar until the mixture becomes smooth again.

Chill in the fridge until ready to be served.
