    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.

      You can beat, stir, mix or whip this for days, but 2 cups of confectionery sugar and one tablespoon of milk will never result in anything smooth. That means that all the "reviewers" not mentioning that flaw never actually tried making it.<br/>With 3+ tablespoons of milk, it's flawless.

      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.
