Recipe Corner: Sugar Cookie Icing

I know this is not one of my typical recipes, but I was so excited to find this, that I had to share. This icing helps make your cookies look professional. When it dries, it is shiny and hard. I hope you enjoy!


• 1 cup confectioners' sugar
• 2 teaspoons milk
• 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
• 1/4 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
• assorted food coloring


1. In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.
2. Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. Dip cookies, or paint them with a brush.
