FRESH STRAWBERRY FROSTING

This is an old recipe from Huntsville, Alabama.

2 tbsp solid shortening
1 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/3 cup crushed strawberries
1 tsp lemon juice

Blend the shortening, butter, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. Beat in one cup of the confectioners' sugar. Stir the lemon juice into the crushed strawberries. Add the strawberries and lemon mixture alternately with the remaining confectioners' sugar to the original mixture, stirring to blend well.

Yield: Enough to frost your favorite two-layer cake.
