  • About


  • ¼ cup butter (or vegetable shortening, I hate to admit)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt
  • (rum if you like it)


Beat until very fluffy. (Add ¼ cup chopped nuts if desired.) [Or shredded coconut or chopped candied fruits. I like it best without additions.] Chill in a bowl and serve with hot gingerbread or any other hot cake.
