Recipe Information
Basic and simple Sugar Cookie Decoration Icing. Less known version, and generally more superior for decorating than Crisco's Basic Icing.


Serves/Makes:3 cups approx.

  • 1 cup (225 ml) milk
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) flour
  • 1 cup (225 ml) Crisco or other vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup (225 ml) sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
  • Cook milk and flour until thick and bubbly. Cool completely.
  • Mix together crisco, sugar and vanilla.
  • Add the two mixtures together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Beat both mixtures together with whip attatchment on mixer (or your beaters on an electric mixer will work too) for at least 5 minutes or until sugar is no longer grainy.
  • Use as desired as a white icing or using food colors, color and tint as desired.
This is my other favorite icing recipe for Sugar Cookie decorationg for Christams or holidays.
