Heirloom Frosting Recipe Question - help!

So I have just discovered my grandmother's famous frosting recipe, which is essentially the following:

cook flour and milk together
let cool completely
beat with crisco, butter and sugar
ta-dah!

Here's my question - what KIND of sugar are we talking about here? The lack of descriptor makes me assume granulated, but wouldn't confectioner's sugar go into solution better?

Help from bakers greatly appreciated!
