Directions:
Step 1:
In a small saucepan whisk together milk, flour and salt. Make sure there are NO lumps.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened and a paste forms away from the walls of the pan.
Cool on a dish covered with waxed paper to keep mixture from forming a crust when cooled.

Step 2:
In a large mixing bowl, whip butter and crisco. Add vanilla.
Add sugar a little at a time and whip until it's light and fluffy.
Gradually add cooled flour mixture and beat until well mixed and light.
(When you taste it you should not taste granules of sugar...should be perfectly smooth tasting)

Cool for a few minutes in the refrigerator before icing.

Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by one of the best cooks I've ever encountered. She made the best food and the best cakes ever. She could have made a fortune making wedding cakes because she was a master. She gave me her frosting recipe and I will share with you. This frosting is very light, fluffy and not too sweet. You'll swear it's whipped cream frosting. The KEY to it's success is to make absolutely sure the flour mixture is cool before you continue with Step 2 of the recipe. It's the greatest frosting to use with icing bags and tips.
