    ajb524's Note:

    I found this recipe on another website. I just tried it on my christmas sugar cookies and really liked it so I wanted to share. Make sure you give the icing plenty of time to harden on your cookies (approx. 2 hours).

      This recipe was fantastic! I used it to decorate cutout cookies for Christmas parties. I used vanilla extract and next time I will bump up the amount because this did taste very sugary (the kids didn't mind, I'm sure!). I used the whole 3/4c. of water because I wanted it to flow easily and it did. Everything I'd heard about RI was that it dried hard so fast so when I got done whipping it (I used my KA mixer with whip) I poured it into several ziploc bags and sealed them. Then, I added food coloring to each individual bag as needed - it doesn't take much. Then I just snipped the corner off the bag and iced the cookies from there. I iced close to 50 cookies and had a bunch left over - this recipe makes close to 4 cups, I'd say. I will definitely make it again. It was very very easy.
