This icing dries shiny, isn’t sticky, and the colors don’t fade.
It is easy to spread and just about guarantees a professional result. Plus it has a hint of almond to keep it interesting.
A great icing to use on The Best Sugar Cookies Ever (link below)!
Both recipes are #1 in their categories on All Recipes. Why not make the best? I doesn’t cost any more. Both recipes are pretty inexpensive anyway. Lots of pizzazz for very little money.
To make the wreath of hearts look shown here, just add dots of a contrasting color and pull a toothpick gently through, connecting the dots. Easy and beautiful!
I’ve seen this heart technique used on cookies in the shape of mittens. The “hearts” look more like knitting stitches if you put the dots fairly close together. Pretty to use various colors as a few accent lines of stitching that way.
I love the look of the snowflake cookies shown with this recipe at All Recipes. Very Martha Stewart looking. This kind of decorated cookies make great gifts. They would look great for a Winter Wonderland Party done in white, blue, and silver.
Even if you let the kids help, the cookies will be the stars of your cookies tray. And you’ll be making memories!
By the way, the icing recipe includes corn syrup. This is not the high-fructose corn syrup that people worry about. You don’t have to feel guilty about using this kind.
