1 1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cup softened butter

4 eggs

Add all ingredients to the Deluxe Cooking Blender and set to Sauce Setting. When prompted to “add” just press start again so it can finish the cycle.

6 cups powdered sugar

Zest from 1 orange

½ tsp salt (optional)

Place softened butter in mixing bowl and blend on high until smooth.
