The 25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 15: Sugar Cookie Frosting

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

…that hardens!

Every year for the first few years of making sugar cookies as a wife and then a wife and mother, I struggled with this concept.  The frosting would either be like cake frosting (and never harden but be soft and fluffy) or like a runny river that never hardened and simply made a big mess.

So, I turned to that old trusty friend, the-site-formerly-known-as-Recipezaar (Food.com).  And, there, I found the recipe of my (and Muffin’s) dreams!

How does such a lovely frosting get made?  Well, here I am to show you.

Sugar Cookie Frosting (That Hardens)

Source:  Food.com

2 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar

1 tablespoon milk + more if needed to thin it out

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1/4 teaspoon other flavoring)

Food coloring

 

In a small bowl, mix confectioner’s sugar with milk.  Add more milk, as necessary, to reach a spreading consistency.  Beat in syrup and flavoring until smooth and glossy.  Divide into bowls and tint with food coloring.

 

To use frosting:  paint cookies using a brush.
