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!

Ingredients

WHITE FROSTING - STEP 1 OF 2
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
3 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 c
milk
WHITE FROSTING - STEP 2 OF 2
1/2 c
crisco shortening
1/2 c
butter, room temperature
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

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 too was wondering about the steps of this recipe. Does the Crisco go in with the 3T butter, flour and milk, to be heated on stovetop? I just made a chocolate cake and wanted a new frosting recipe. This one sounds great! I'd hate to mess it up.
Thanks.

I have not tried the recipe because the directions seemed to have a typo, so I scanned the comments to find out if anybody picked up on it. Some people did have problems with it being too thin. People who have been making it for along time don't seem to be having problems. The directions start out saying: "Put the four [(4)] white frosting sauce ingredients (Step 1 of 2) in a small pot over low heat..." However, there are only THREE (3) ingredients listed in Step 1 of 2. I am wondering if the problems are a result of adding the 4th ingredient, the shortening to the pot, thus melting it. So, which is the typo, the word "four" in the first sentence of the directions or the missing 4th ingredient in Step 1 of 2. Would be nice to know what is correct, because it sounds like it would be a good recipe from those who have a history with this recipe.
