Karen's notes for this recipe:
This delicious cooked frosting recipe was given to me by a co-worker, Judy Larson who also enjoys cooking and baking. You will never ever buy a plastic tub of frosting again! I have also done some research and many years ago, this was a Depression-era frosting also called Poorman's Frosting. It can also be colored with food coloring for extra flair. You must try it, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

Directions

1
Put the four white frosting sauce ingredients
(Step 1 of 2) in a small pot over low heat and whisk until thickened. Remove from heat and cool mixture completely in a bowl. To avoid a skin on the frosting, place plastic wrap on top.
2
Once the frosting has cooled, then add the
(Step 2 of 2) ingredients and beat with a stand mixer or hand mixer for approximately 10 minutes until nice and fluffy. YUM!!!

I have made this frosting lots of times. It is so creamy and so much better than powdered sugar frosting!

I make this as well, maybe 15 yrs I would say, would never go back to
powdered sugar either. Always comes out good too.

I made this frosting and it came out too thin (watery) I believe the sugar should go in step 2.
