DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all of the frosting ingredients in small bowl, with a hand mixer, until smooth.
  • Spoon the frosting in plastic resealable food bag.
  • Cut a very small tip from one corner. Decorate cookies with frosting to create desired designs. Sprinkle with sugar, if using.
  • Bake as directed on the cookie recipe. If desired, sprinkle with sugar again while still warm.
  • Tip: If frosting is too thick, stir in 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon hot water; if too thin, stir in 1 to 2 teaspoons flour.
  • For cinnamon-vanilla frosting: Substitute vanilla extract for the hot water and add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
  • For lemon frosting: Substitute fresh lemon juice for the hot water. You can add 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest for extra flavor, if desired.
