Meringue Powder Glaze

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by appleydapply

This recipe is from the May 2001 issue of Creative Home magazine. It's easy to make and gives an impressive glossy finish to sugar cookies. Especially good on Bloomin' Sugar Cookies (Bloomin' Sugar Cookies). Note: the only place I've found to purchase meringue powder is a specialty cake decorating shop.

So easy to work with I'm contemplating using the leftovers to fashion for my husband a leisure suit. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag. (Used my recipe for recipe #401966)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a fork, beat together in a small bowl the meringue powder, water, and 2 cups of the sifted powdered sugar until smooth.
  2. Gradually stir in about 1 1/2 cups additional powdered sugar to make a smooth glaze that is spreadable but not runny. It should have a flowing consistency and be too thin to have ridges when spread.
  3. Divide into separate bowls if desired before tinting with paste food coloring.
  4. Use to frost sugar cookies of your choice - or Bloomin' Sugar Cookies (recipe #188686).
