Linda's Icing

Icing for Cookies and Cakes (or to just eat out of the bowl). My husband asks me to make this icing anytime I make cookies. It's not a seasonal cookie without his mom's icing :)

1/4 c. Butter
3/4 c. Crisco
1 tsp almond flavoring
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla (or 1 tabllespoon imitation vanilla)
4-4 1/2 c powdered sugar
1/4 c milk or however much you need to spread like you want

Mix butter & shortening- add flavorings;  add sugar 1 c. at a time, mixing well after each addition. After final sugar & milk, mix on medium high for 3-5 min till smooth & creamy & spreads well. Add milk or powdered sugar if needed.  (I use my kitchenaid mixer)  you can also add color with milk if you want
