I just used this tonight, I had a small batch of cookies, about 20, that I wanted to ice with a white icing and then put sprinkles on top, so I halved the recipe. I am not much of a decorator, but I just wanted the sprinkles to have something to stick to. The whole thing went together very easily. I did have to add a tad more milk to make it spreadable, and I had a bit of icing left over, probably enough for 10 cookies. Mine were small, so maybe larger cookies would have used up more of it. I would definitely use this again. I could see how it would work well if you used food coloring and piped the icing onto the cookie. Thanks for posting the recipe.
