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!
