DIRECTIONS

  • VERY IMPORTANT; the confectioners sugar must be sifted before using.
  • In a bowl beat the sifted confectioners sugar with milk until smooth.
  • Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until smooth and glossy (if icing is too thick add in a small amount of corn syrup).
  • Divide into as many separate bowls as desired.
  • Add in different food coloring to each bowl beating/whisking until the intensity is achieved.
  • Paint the icing over the cookies using a brush or dip the cookie edges into icing (this will set quite quickly).
  • Place cookies on waxed paper to dry.
