- 1/2 cup margarine (not butter, but I suppose you could use it, make it even better)
- 1/2 cup Crisco
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla (I really like Watkin's)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups powder sugar (1 pound)
- 3 teaspoons milk
- food coloring of your choice
I bet you could make this chocolate, but adding 1/4 cup cocoa.
Cream margarine and Crisco. Mix in vanilla and salt. Add three cups of sugar, and 2 teaspoons milk. Mix. Add 1 cup of sugar. Mix. Add food coloring and final teaspoon of milk if the frosting needs it.
