Here is the recipe I use. It crusts well (probably not as well as ALL Crisco, but i refuse - I want it to taste good too) and is tasty.

This is a double recipe (all I ever make).

1 stick butter (normal, not unsalted)
1/2 cup Crisco
7 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 tsp. vanilla
6-8 tbsp. milk

Crisco is a solid vegetable oil/shortening. You can get it in tubs or sticks. I've used the recipe MandyE shared, but used water instead. Here's another one:
2 sticks Crisco
3 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp water
2 lb powdered sugar
2 Tbsp M. powder
It's basically the Wilton recipe but you can also adjust the flavorings (add) and also add cream cheese to cut the sweetness a little.

My recipe is a twist off the wilton one.

1 1/2 cup crisco
1 tsp. vanilla flavor
1/2 tsp. almond flavor
1/2 butter flavor
4 TBLS. water
2 lbs pwder sugar
1 TBLS. meringue powder
a pinch or 2 of popcorn salt

Cream the crisco, butter, water, salt, flavoring together. Add dry ingredients and mix on medium until all ingredients have mixed together. Blend an additional minute or so, until creamy.

I hope this helps
