Fluffy White Frosting

This is the most time-intensive frosting I make, but it is special– light, creamy, not too sweet. It makes a great filling or brownie-topper, too!

Soften 2 sticks (1 c) butter.

Mix 1/4 c flour and  1/4 milk (whole, or cut your skim with some half and half) and mix until smooth.  Slowly whisk in 3/4 c more milk and 1 t vanilla.  Cook over low heat, stirring, until mixture thickens considerably.  Remove from heat and stir occasionally as it cools.

Meanwhile, beat 1 c sugar (just ordinary sugar, not powdered, which makes this a great recipe for a day when you realize you’re out of powdered sugar and don’t feel like a shopping trip) into the butter until very fluffy (probably at least 5 minutes).  Slowly add in the cooled goop and continue to beat.  Finish it up with some more vanilla.
