Perfect Cookie Icing


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. milk
  • 2 tsp. corn syrup


In a small bowl, blend powdered sugar with milk. Add corn syrup and blend until perfectly smooth. Add desired liquid or paste food coloring and blend.


The syrup adds a glossy sheen to the cookies. Allow the cookie icing to dry completely on the cookies before stacking finished cookies in layers between wax paper.

This is fun for children too. Have them paint the cookies with a pastry brush and the put sprinkles on them if desired before it hardens.
