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.
- Cream together butter and sugar. Slowly mix in milk, then vanilla and almond.
- Whisk until fluffy.
- Can be spread or piped onto cookies.
- Icing will begin to harden in less than 30 minutes. Wait a few hours before stacking iced cookies.
