Carrot Frosting

4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup reconstituted carrots (cook in water until soft)
milk
dash of salt

In a medium bowl mash carrots, then add 4 cups powdered sugar and 1/4 cup margarine or butter, and salt. Add enough milk to make frosting spreadable. Good on sugar cookies.

Testing comment: I cooked the carrots until soft. My family really liked this frosting. It tasted good, but the carrots were hard to mash and so they were really prominent looking.
