Easy Frosting

Easy Frosting created by lilsweetie

I have been making this recipe for years. I don't know if someone else has the same one, but it is one I came up with when I was first married and I did not care for the store ready-to-spread ones. You can also add food coloring too--I have had some pretty colors with this frosting.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix Crisco, butter and vanilla together using medium speed on mixer.
  • Add confectioners sugar until blended inches.
  • Add milk, a little bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency you want; creamier for a cake and more liquid for on top of cookies.
  • You don't want it too thin, just eye it up for what you would be using it for.

    We make this frosting for our cookies and crescent rolls. It is delicious and reminds me of my Dad's frosting that he made when I was little. Thanks for posting!!!

    Wonderfully easy and delicious recipe. Beats the hell out of the canned stuff and so easy that even I can make it (this was my first time making frosting). I used all butter (1/2 cup) as opposed to shortening and butter and it tastes/looks great. Way too easy for as good as it is. Not a complex flavor I suppose, but DEFINITELY stands up to its name. Would definitely recommend!

    This frosting was excellent! I had white cake mix and no frosting and two children beging for cake! I used veggie oil and blue bonnet margarne instead of crisco as well and it came out great! Thanks for sharing this recipe, the cake went n one night!
