Skip royal icing and try this easy icing for decorating cookies. Ready in mins, this simple powdered sugar icing will turn your plain sugar cookies into festive treats!
Add powdered sugar in a bowl & stir in water (or milk), corn syrup & vanilla extract, if using. Mix until the desired consistency is reached.
Let the glaze pour off the spoon. The glaze should fall into a ribbon & hold the shape for a few secs before melting back into the glaze.
If the glaze is too thick, add a drop of water & test again. If the glaze is too runny, add a little more powdered sugar.
Feel free to add food coloring to make colored icing.
Transfer the icing into a squeeze bottle, or a piping bag with small round tip. Decorate the cookies & let the icing set.
