Sugar Cookie Glaze

This glaze/frosting is the best ever! It gets hard enough so you are able to stack the cookies but when you bite into it it's creamy! Wonderful!! I found it on....Pinterest! Pinterest really is great! :)

I added yellow sprinkles to this star to give it a shine!

2 1/4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
 1 1/2 - 2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon milk* 
Food coloring (if desired)

Whisk together sugar, corn syrup, and 1 1/2 Tablespoons of milk until well incorporated  This will be very thick and hard to stir. You then add the rest of the milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time.*
Add food coloring if desired.
Spread icing onto cookie and allow the icing to dry. I let mine dry overnight and it was perfect.
Store loosely covered. If you store in an air tight container the icing will get runny again.

*DO NOT, get impatient and add all the milk at once. Each I made this recipe it took a different amount of milk. The last time I made it I added 1/2 teaspoon too much milk because I got impatient and it took the icing way longer to dry! This can get a little tricky but take your time. You want the icing to be smooth and spread over the cookie but not dribble over the edge. If it keeps running you have added too much milk. And you can't more sugar to even it out. So be PATIENT! 
If you need more help watch this video, it helps a lot!!


  1. Hi Kelly,
    I'll definitely have to try this icing. I'm always looking for something different for the kids cookies. You can find me at Have a great holiday!
