Terrific frosting recipe! It tasted delicious on my gingerbread cookies and when dried, it wasn't at all sticky or tacky~just a great consistency. Thank you for a wonderful frosting recipe! =)

This is incredible icing! I wanted to use the Big Soft Ginger Cookies for a fall sandwich cookie and needed a complimentary icing. This was the one. I added a tbsp. of butter and a little vanilla and doubled the recipe. This was the best icing. I could see how this would be good on a pumpkin or sugar cookie, too. It sets up well, too.

Just remember that with the spices the frosting won't be white. Tastes good and actually enhanced the cookie flavor, which is neat as I tend not to like frosting. I used it with the Gingerbread Boys recipe by Janice Brubaker.
