    Suze K's Note:

    This frosting works well on decorated cookies because it hardens when cool.

      I didn't have corn syrup on hand; just added some lemon juice to one batch and some almond essence to another. Worked fine! Thanks. (I also didn't use butter for one batch -- it turned out OK too.)

      Super easy to make! Super easy to use! We rolled out rice krispie squares & then cut them out into shapes & decorated them w/ this icing-they look great!

      This icing is very good. I really like the flavor and the fact that it hardened, allowing me to stack the finished cookies. I did have to add a bit more milk to get the right consistency. I used it to ice cow shaped cookies that I made with the "White Velvet Cutout Cookie" recipe. They were a big hit.
