Decorator Icing for Sugar Cookies PRINT
- YIELD: 1 cup
- PREP TIME: 10 min
- COOK TIME: 0 min
An icing that hardens so you don’t smuge your work!
|2||cups sifted confectioners' sugar (sifted after measuring)|
|1||tablespoon low-fat milk (skim or 1% is fine although I have made this successfully using 2% fat milk)|
|1||tablespoon white or clear corn syrup (more if needed to reach desired consistency)|
|½||teaspoon almond extract|
|food coloring (use colors of choice)|
VERY IMPORTANT; the confectioners sugar must be sifted before using.
In a bowl beat the sifted confectioners sugar with milk until smooth.
Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until smooth and glossy (if icing is too thick add in a small amount of corn syrup).
Divide into as many separate bowls as desired.
Add in different food coloring to each bowl beating/whisking until the intensity is achieved.
Paint the icing over the cookies using a brush or dip the cookie edges into icing (this will set quite quickly).
Place cookies on waxed paper to dry.
