- Cooking Time: 5 minutes
- Preparation Time: 3 minutes
- 1 cup shortening
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
- 4 tablespoons milk
- Beat together shortening and vanilla for 30 seconds medium speed with an electric mixer. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar a bit at a time while beating. Then add 2 tablespoons milk. Slowly add in the rest of the powdered sugar and the rest of the milk until you get the right thickness & taste for your frosting. You can add a little more or less powdered sugar for desired sweetness.
NotesThis was my first-ever homemade frosting recipe & everyone loved it! It's simple & tasty & easy to spread. I love mixing in chocolate chips, sprinkles, food coloring, and other little treats to spice it up a little, but even kids can make this!
