Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine*
1 tsp. clear vanilla extract
4 cups sifted confectioner's sugar (approx. 1 lb)
2 Tbsp. milk

Crean butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light & fluffy.

Makes 3 cups

Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored for 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.

For chocolate Buttercream Icing:
Add 3 0z. melted unsweetened chocolate and 1 Tbsp. more milk to recipe.

* Substitute all vegetable shortening and 1/2 tsp. no-color butter flavor for pure white icing and stiffer consistency.
