    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This will harden and it will hardens quite quickly, it's the perfect icing to decorate cookies, if desired you may omit the vanilla, I like to add it in, the amounts may be reduced by half if desired.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 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 corn syrup (more if needed to reach desired consistency)
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    • food coloring (use colors of choice)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      VERY IMPORTANT; the confectioners sugar must be sifted before using.
    2. 2
      In a bowl beat the sifted confectioners sugar with milk until smooth.
    3. 3
      Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until smooth and glossy (if icing is too thick add in a small amount of corn syrup).
    4. 4
      Divide into as many separate bowls as desired.
    5. 5
      Add in different food coloring to each bowl beating/whisking until the intensity is achieved.
    6. 6
      Paint the icing over the cookies using a brush or dip the cookie edges into icing (this will set quite quickly).
    7. 7
      Place cookies on waxed paper to dry.

      Excellent! My only change was to use rice milk instead of dairy yo accomodate a kid with an allergy. I had to use 2 tblsp of rice milk. I colored it, and added strawberry extract. I dipped the cookies and wiped/spread with pastry brush. Great recipe, thanl uou.

      This is a really good recipe. Normally I can't stand decorating cookies. It's my least favorite baking chore. I'd rather wash dishes than frost cookies. But this stuff was really fun to work with! It was too thick to paint on with pastry brush. I spread it on shortbread cookies with a small angled spatula. It was a beautiful thick consistency and went on like a dream. It tastes good too. Darn I wish I'd found this recipe sooner. Thx Kittencal!

      I decided to make basketball cookies for an end of the year surprise for my team and this frosting was PERFECT! We colored the icing orange and it hardened perfectly so we could finish them off with black basketball lines. My only regret is not taking a picture!
