Buttercream Icing
(Medium Consistency)

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
2 tablespoons milk

1) In a large bowl, cream shortening and butter with electric mixer.
2) Add vanilla.
3) Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time while beating well on medium speed. Remember to scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry.
4) Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
5) Keep bowl covered with a damp cloth until ready for use.

Makes about 3 cups of icing.
