  • 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup regular white Crisco
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1: Mix together Flour and Milk

  • Take the flour and milk and mix them together until they achieve a smooth, lump free consistency. This can be down by using a tightly sealed jar and shaking them up.

Step 2: Heating the Flour and Milk

  • Cook the flour and milk on low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes thick. Set the mixture aside until cool.

Step 3: Cream Ingredients

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and Crisco until the mixture reaches a creamy texture.

Step 4: Beat Ingredients

  • Add the cooled flour and milk mixture to the creamed butter, sugar and Crisco. Using an electric mixer, beat together the ingredients on high power. Beat until the mixture reaches the consistency of whipped cream.

Step 5: Adding the Vanilla

  • Add the vanilla to the mixture and mix until combined.
  • The leftover frosting should be stored in the refrigerator in order to keep it fresh. This frosting comes out white, so food coloring may be added to reach the desired color.


When making this frosting, it is important to not over mix the frosting, as it will lose its whipped consistency. Before you frost your baked goods, make sure they have cooled for at least 15 minutes to make sure your frosting doesn’t melt.
If you are planning to use a piping bag and tips; star, plain and leaf tips are the easiest to use. If you plan to use a piping bag for frosting a cake, look for a piping bag that is at least 16 inches.
