POOR MAN'S WHIPPED CREAM FROSTING
- 5 Tbsp. Wondra flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup butter-flavor Crisco
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
Mix flour and milk in saucepan; cook over low heat until thick, stirring constantly. Be careful not to burn bottom.
Remove from heat, cover lightly with plastic wrap right on top of the mixture to prevent a skin from forming, and refrigerate until cool.
Cream butter, Crisco, and the vanilla for 4 minutes with electric mixer. Add sugar and beat 4 minutes more. Add cooled flour paste and beat an additional 4 minutes until smooth and creamy.
