Mystery Icing


This might be the icing recipe that Terry in Hilton, NY was looking for in the Monday, May 13, newsletter. It is cooked on top of the stove and does have to be refrigerated. It can be used on any cake, I guess, but mostly as an alternative to cream cheese icing for Red Velvet cake.

Mystery Icing (I usually double the recipe below for a thick icing)

4 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
Dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Blend flour and milk. Cook until mixture thickens to consistency of cream. Cool but do not chill. Cream sugar, butter and shortening, adding salt and vanilla. Add the cooked flour mixture and continue beating until very fluffy.
