Icing recipe from Mawmaw’s recipe box


This one is written on the back of an envelope – I remember my grandmother making this one though – she called it a 7 Minute icing … 

1 1/2 C sugar

1/2 C Karo Syrup

2 egg whites

5 Tablespoons water or pineapple juice

Cook on a double boiler – have water boiling before you start mixing.

Beat with an electric mixer at high speed until the icing is in peaks.
