Cookie Icing

Ever year my mother in law makes amazing Christmas Cookies and homemade icing. I have never tried to make the icing until this year. I was shocked at how simple it is and how yummy it is.  It is only 5 ingredients and super easy. 

What you need:

1 lb powdered sugar
1 c. Crisco
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. clear vanilla
1/2 tsp almost extract
Food coloring if desired.

Beat the crisco until it is fluffy. Add sugar, water and flavorings. Beat this for 5 minutes. It is enough for about 1 cake or a 2 dozen cookies. I keep mine in the refrigerator and make them as I want them. If it gets to thick I add milk to help with it as well. 


  1. This is such an easy recipe! i think that i am going to try it because they look so yummy!


  2. that seems super easy! Of course I would probably mess it up! haha!

  3. I love simple recipes with a few ingredients. :) Definitely have to try this. The icing probably won't even make it onto the cookies, I'll just eat it with a spoon. ;)
