Lucy Miller's Frosting

½ c. Crisco
1 stick margarine
2T flour
a dash of salt
1 t vanilla (it’s supposed to be clear vanilla or butter vanilla. In a pinch you could use regular vanilla, but your frosting won’t be as white. Not bad if you’re coloring the whole batch…but it does affect some colors too.)
1 box powdered sugar
½ c whipping cream (put ½ cup in measuring cup, but you likely won’t need it all. Add gradually until you get the right consistency.)

You really need a good stand mixer to make this (Kitchen-Aid) or it will be difficult. Mix together all ingredients except the cream. Now add the cream gradually. Letting it mix in thoroughly, then add a bit more. When you’ve added the necessary cream, whip on high for 10 minutes. (I have a professional series mixer…so I don’t have to use speed 10…but really pretty high)
