Best-Tasting Sugar Cookie Icing Recipe
I’m getting excited thinking and planning for Christmas baking.
One of my favorite things to make during the holidays is cookies. They are practically the best for shipping to friends and family scattered across the US.
Sugar cookies are often a safe bet when sending cookies. Almost everyone enjoys a soft, sturdy cookie flavored with sweet vanilla. Especially when they are decorated with the tastiest icing ever!
This best-tasting sugar cookie icing comes from my friends Donna and Chad’s new cookbook, The Simple Kitchen. They are the faces behind The Slow Roasted Italian and this is their first cookbook. It’s definitely one they should feel proud of.
The book’s focus is on flavorful recipes that can be made quick and easy. You can tell they really put their heart and soul into developing the recipes in the book.
I immediately went straight to the desserts and when I saw this sugar cookie icing, I knew I had to try it. I’m typically not a fan of cookie icing because it tastes like nothing but powdered sugar.
But, Donna’s secret ingredient promised to give the icing that “wow” factor. And indeed it did. It’s so tasty and beyond easy to make.
The printable recipe card with full ingredient amounts and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
Sugar cookie icing that dries hard
The ratio of milk to sugar keeps the icing thick so it dries hard. This is exactly what you want when shipping cookies off as a holiday gift.
Corn syrup is added to make the icing smooth and shiny. Then the secret ingredient, almond extract, is added for flavor.
The icing is so easy to work with. Color it any way you like and pour it into decorator squeeze bottles. Then you just squeeze the icing onto the cookies. It’s way too simple!
Their book is filled with so many amazing dessert recipes like Donna’s Famous Sugar Cookies, No Bake Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie, Legendary Pecan Pie Bars, and so much more.
