Sugar Cookie Frosting
August 25, 2003

This is definitely up there in terms of frosting for cookies-- frankly, its the only stuff I use--I've made this 3 or 4 times now. I make this with the recipe on this site: "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" and it is just fantastic! If you aren't a big fan of sweet stuff, however, I would suggest halving this recipe-- this really makes way more than necessary for that recipe. If you are a big fan of sweet stuff, however-- glop it on! I seriously suggest putting in the shortening, then slowly adding the powdered sugar about half a cup at a time. Once it starts clumping up, add the milk/ etc, then add more sugar if you want to make it a bit thicker. I've found that if it gets too clumpy, it won't dissolve the clumps, and you have to smooth it out with a spatula, which takes forever.
