Recipe from  Cookies and Cups

Here's the frosting recipe I used:
Vanilla Buttercream Icing
3/4 cup butter (1 stick and 1/2 stick)
1/4 cup shortening
3-4 cups of confectioner's sugar, sifted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-5 tablespoons half and half (or milk)

Using a mixer, beat butter until it is fluffy.  Add 3 cups of sugar -
one cup at a time - mixing until it's completely incorporated.  Add
vanilla and half and half along with last cup of sugar and mix, adding
more half and half until the icing is the desired consistency.
