    The Giggle Box's Note:

    One of the parents in my class brought in some sugar cookies topped with this icing. It was delicious! The recipe came from a book called Cookie Dough Fun. I just made this recipe myself, and I had to add a 2 tablespoons of milk to it - the icing was very stiff and it hardens quickly. The taste is fantastic though and it looked really pretty on the cookie.

      I made this today to decorate my gingerbread people and it turned out fantastic! I also used vanilla essence as I am not a huge fan of almond essences (and neither are my kids). I found that it was rather thick but that was fixed when I added the food colouring. This is a great recipe that I will definately use again. Thank you so much for posting!

      GREAT! I made it for gingerbread men. It was a great recipe and rlly easy. I used vanilla extract instead and it worked great. It was kinda think and i only used 2 cups of sugar and it didnt seem to make ALOT but enough for about 15-20 cookies.
