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.

I love this frosting. Not only do I use it on my sugar cookies, I use it on my cupcakes too. Though the top solidifys a bit, it is still soft to eat and not nearly as messy as other frostings I've tried (which is perfect for a classful of pre-schoolers & b-day parties)! This is now my go-to frosting recipe. Thanks for sharing, wyojess!

This Glaze is perfect. Quick and easy. My kids loved that they could see the indents of the Patern on the cookies through the icing because we decorated them even more with buttercream piping tips to outline the faces. This made it very easy to do for my 6 little creative mess makers to follow the outlines. Very good and easy!

Made this frosting for sugar cookies. The taste is good and drying time is quick. This turned out to be more like a glaze for me. Worked well. Thank you

We used this frosting on our gingerbread cookies this year. We choose to use almond extract, but will go with vanilla next time. The drying time was very quick.
