Love the almond flavoring in this icing! Go easy if you're using regular food coloring because it can make it a tiny bit runny if you use more than a few drops. We iced our World's Best Butter Cookies (recipe #50684) with these, then put the icing in little zip-top bags and cut a tiny bit of the corner off to pipe on the detail. They turned out beautifully! Thanks for sharing, Melanie!

I am a full-time mom to an amazing 5-year-old boy who is too smart for his own good and a beautiful 1-year-old little girl. I am married to the love of my life, who always keeps me on my toes and keeps me laughing. i cherish every moment i get to spend with my family. I love to bake, so you'll catch me searching for lots of recipes for all sorts of sweets. My boys are both picky eaters, so I'm always looking for ways to hide veggies in whatever I can!!! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
