    Secret recipe from the bakery! A yummy frosting that sets up into a hardened glaze on top of the cookie, but remains tender to eat. Great for taking cookies 'on the road' because they won't stick together.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together sugar, flavoring, measured water, corn syrup, and food coloring. Slowly add enough water to make frosting a spreadable consistency (should be thicker than Elmer's school glue).
    2. 2
      If a strong color is desired, decrease water so that the food coloring doesn’t make frosting too runny. If you get the frosting too runny, add a little powdered sugar.
    3. 3
      Spread on cookies (add sprinkles or other toppings immediately). Allow to dry about 30 min or until no longer sticky. Will set up into a glaze so cookies won’t stick together when stacked.
    4. 4
      This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of frosting (about enough for one color).

      Very good! Not quite as tasty as a butter-cream type frosting, but this one can travel/stack! I didn't have corn syrup, so I substituted honey and it worked fine...maybe not super-glossy, but they had a nice sheen and looked fine for my purposes. I only got 10 large cookies frosted with this recipe amount, but I do tend to spread it thick. That may also be why they took over an hour to set completely in our humid climate. Overall a great recipe!!

      Super easy and good taste as well. This glaze dries quickly and holds color very well. I used for pumpkin shaped sugar cookies to take to a neighborhood Halloween event. I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to stack them- this recipe was a great fit. I used regular vanilla and it did not affect color. Great recipe! I will use again.
