I adore lofthouse cookies. Mmm!


  1. In a large bowl, cream together the confectioners' sugar and shortening until smooth.
  2. Gradually mix in the milk and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth and stiff, about 5 minutes.
  3. Color with food coloring if desired.

I substituted evaporated milk in this frosting and found it tasted more like the 'Lofthouse' cookie icing. It was good, thanks!

Good--I did 3 1/2 c powdered sugar instead of 4, and 4 instead of 5 Tbsp milk, and I thought it turned out very good. I think evaporated milk might have been even better--I plan to try that next time.

Way too sweet. If I made it again I would definately cut back on some of the sugar. I will say tho that it held color very nicely and set very well on the cookies.
