We wanted cookies that tasted great and were easy to roll out during busy baking times.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a simple glaze icing recipe that would set up on rolled butter cookies, and was also versatile enough to flavor or color for any occasion. We found that the easiest icing recipe was to mix confectioner’s sugar with just enough milk to make a smooth icing that could be adjusted effortlessly with drops of food coloring or flavor extracts. This no-fuss icing recipe will harden over time, so if you’re still using it, whisk in a few drops of milk to return it to a fluid consistency.
