Graham Cracker Icing

My mother used to make graham cracker cookies for us all the time. We usually just used left-over frosting from a cake. Her recipe was really good, only we usually had chocolate frosting just because that was our favorite. Just leave out cocoa for vanilla frosting.

Original recipe makes 3 cups of frosting


1/2 cup margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk

  1. In a large bowl, beat the margarine, egg and vanilla, using an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Stir in confectioners sugar and cocoa until smooth. Beat in the milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the desired spreading consistency is reached. You may need to adjust the amount of milk used.
