Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, stir together shortening and corn syrup. Mix in salt and vanilla flavoring, then gradually mix in confectioners' sugar until it is a stiff dough. If you are using a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment. Otherwise, knead by hand. If the dough is sticky, knead in more confectioners' sugar until it is smooth. Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
