Perfect Royal Icing

Perfect Royal Icing created by History Teacher

This is the best recipe I have found for sugar cookie icing. Try my recipe for "World's Greatest Sugar Cookies" for an excellent snack.

Ready In:
5mins
Yields:
Units:

ingredients

  • 3 -4 egg whites (or equivalent powdered egg white)
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 8 tablespoons water
  • 14 teaspoon almond flavoring
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon butter flavoring

directions

  • Beat first three ingredients, then thin with a little water, if needed.
  • Add almond, vanilla, and butter flavoring.
  • Depending on how many colors you want, divide it between several bowls.
  • To decorate on top of original layer of icing, thicken with powdered sugar until desired thickness.
  • Decorating works best when used in the decorating bags with tips.
  • Also, before spreading thin icing over cookies, try putting an outline of thick icing from a small decorating tip around the edge of the cookie.
  • This way, the thin icing will not drip over the edge.

    This is a great recipe for royal icing. I found the flavor combination to be delicious. For those who are unsure about how long to beat the icing- I beat the pasturized egg whites until they were frothy. I then added the powdered sugar, and beat until a soft-medium peak formed. I also made sure I added my powdered sugar gradually- I think the flavor comes out better. Thanks for posting! This will be my go-to royal icing. :)

    This is good frosting! I made this along with your Recipe#55335. It was fabulous, and even held in the fridge for a couple days, I just remixed it and it was perfect! The taste was wonderful, and the flavorings are perfect! I was putting hardly any frosting on the cookies, but you couldnt taste the frosting at all.....so next time I will PILE this frosting on! LOL Thanks so much for a wonderful Royal Icing recipe!
