Fluffy White Frosting

This is a variation of Pioneer Women's frosting and is so delish. Light and fluffy and not too sweet. I think it would make a great dip for strawberries as well.

In saucepan put
1 cup of milk (I used evap) and add
5 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp sugar

Whisk together and cook over low heat till thick. Don't overcook. Add 1 tsp of vanilla and let cool completely.

In large bowl cream together
1 cube butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar minus 1 Tbsp

Add flour mixture to shortening mixture and cream till light and fluffy and the granules of sugar have dissolved. Even after beating the frosting might be a bit grainy but will dissolve after about an hour.

Serve with Pioneer Women's Best Chocolate Sheet Cake.

*You can substitute brown sugar for banana cake or zuchinni bread.
