 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           granulated sugar
    1      cup           butter flavored Crisco or 2 sticks -- (1/4 lb
      2/3  cup           milk
    1      tablespoon    vanilla
 
 Mix sugar and Crisco together.  Heat milk until hot on finger.  (Do not boil.) 
  Add half of the milk to sugar - Crisco mixture and beat 2 minutes. Add rest of
  milk and beat 8 minutes longer (a total of 10 minutes all together). The beati
 ng breaks up the sugar granules to a whipped cream consistency, but is a butter
  type.
 
  To make a whipped cream frosting, use white Crisco instead of butter-flavored.
   (I use these often as I don't always have confectioners sugar on hand.)
