Sugar Cookie Icing
Add the milk to the powdered sugar, stirring until combined. Stir in light corn syrup until shiny and smooth. Divide into bowls to add food coloring. Note, the recipe listed below works best for one color. Double or triple as needed for more colors.
We went with red, green, and white today. Anything goes, have fun with lots of colors. Add just one drop of food coloring for light icing or add number
Organize your icings in separate bowls before you get started. Makes things much easier!
I also like to put my toppings in little bowls so I can control where my sprinkles/toppings go onto the cookies.
How Should I Frost My Cookies?
Use a knife, spoon, offset spatula or even a little clean paint brush to frost your cookies. Whatever you like! I used an offset spatula. Works great. Be sure to put your sprinkles on as soon as you ice your cookies. It dries pretty quick. Let cookie icing set completely before packaging. Takes 1-2 hours to set completely.
