Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I adopted this recipe from my mom, so there's not an actual measurable recipe. You just keep adding ingredients until it's the right consistency and amount. I use whatever liquid dairy I have in the refrigerator. It really doesn't matter. I use it on cakes, sugar (Christmas) cookies, etc. If you have any leftover, it's yummy on graham crackers.
