    This is the best recipe I have found for sugar cookie icing. Try my recipe for "World's Greatest Sugar Cookies" for an excellent snack.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    big bow ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3-4 egg whites (or equivalent powdered egg white)
    • 907.18 g powdered sugar
    • 118.32 ml water
    • 1.23 ml almond flavoring
    • 2.46 ml vanilla
    • 2.46 ml butter flavoring

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Beat first three ingredients, then thin with a little water, if needed.
    2. 2
      Add almond, vanilla, and butter flavoring.
    3. 3
      Depending on how many colors you want, divide it between several bowls.
    4. 4
      To decorate on top of original layer of icing, thicken with powdered sugar until desired thickness.
    5. 5
      Decorating works best when used in the decorating bags with tips.
    6. 6
      Also, before spreading thin icing over cookies, try putting an outline of thick icing from a small decorating tip around the edge of the cookie.
    7. 7
      This way, the thin icing will not drip over the edge.

      This is a great recipe for royal icing. I found the flavor combination to be delicious. For those who are unsure about how long to beat the icing- I beat the pasturized egg whites until they were frothy. I then added the powdered sugar, and beat until a soft-medium peak formed. I also made sure I added my powdered sugar gradually- I think the flavor comes out better. Thanks for posting! This will be my go-to royal icing. :)

      This is good frosting! I made this along with your World's Greatest Sugar Cookies. It was fabulous, and even held in the fridge for a couple days, I just remixed it and it was perfect! The taste was wonderful, and the flavorings are perfect! I was putting hardly any frosting on the cookies, but you couldnt taste the frosting at all.....so next time I will PILE this frosting on! LOL Thanks so much for a wonderful Royal Icing recipe!
