I found this on the Wilton forums when searching the web for an eggless royal icing substitute. I made a batch this morning and used it to assemble a gingerbread house. The pieces stuck together easily, the icing isn't running, and the roof isn't slipping at all. I'm very pleased! (Note: I'm posting the recipe as I found it, but I had to add an extra tsp of liquid - I used water, total of 3 tsp - as it was very pellet-like at first.)
I poached this recipe from cooks.com (it was submitted by Dawn Linke, so props to her). I'm mainly posting it here since this is the recipe site I use the most and I want to add it to my cookbook, and I was most happy with this recipe vs. other eggless pancake recipes I've tried, so I figured it was worth sharing. :)
I did a search and couldn't find fruit cocktail squares like these. My mom used to make them every Christmas when I was a kid. They're very simple to make and really tasty. This recipe calls for an 8 x 8 pan, but I've made it in a 9 x 9 and just added a little more fruit cocktail. You can add a layer of whipped cream to the whole pan, or a dollop to each square when serving. They're really nice on their own too.
Hope you enjoy! :)
