    Melanie2590's Note:

    I have used several different icing recipes on my cookies over the years and this is by far my favorite. I find that cookie glaze, while simple and easy, doesn't have enough flavor and is almost impossible to do any real decorating with. My 4-yr-old DS loves to help me decorate cookies and this frosting even stands up when piped on, just like you would decorate a cake.

      Love the almond flavoring in this icing! Go easy if you're using regular food coloring because it can make it a tiny bit runny if you use more than a few drops. We iced our World's Best Butter Cookies (World's Best Butter Cookies) with these, then put the icing in little zip-top bags and cut a tiny bit of the corner off to pipe on the detail. They turned out beautifully! Thanks for sharing, Melanie!

      This is a great recipe! I looked at others but they called for corn syrup (which I NEVER use), or evaporated milk (I didn't have any on hand). I already had everything I needed for this recipe and it was so easy to make that my 11 year-old DD made it on her own. We will definitely make this again!
