Perfect Sugar Cookie Glaze

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Amis227

I needed an easy glaze the hardened quickly (instead of over night like so many) but one that still had good flavor. This dries hard enough to stack the cookies. Note: Make one batch at a time. It's unmanageable in anything larger. Children's water color brushes or those used for painting chocolate molds work well. Make sure to put down wax paper or parchment paper on your work surface and prepare for messy kidlets. Originally found at All Recipes

This was my first time using a hard glaze for my sugar cookies. It was very easy and turned out so beautiful! I did follow one reviewers suggestion and used only 1 tbsp of milk instead of 2.
