As this recipe's first reviewer I can happily report that no cookie icing gets the job done any easier, quicker or better than this. It's bright and glossy, and doesn't thicken so fast that you have to rush to get your cookies glazed. Other than having to add more milk than called for (certainly no biggie) this was just what I was after. I also appreciated that there no flavorings in the ingredients, something each cook can do on his/her own if they choose. For me, I liked the neutral flavor.

Excellent! I would suggest taking a small portion of the colored icing and adding a drop more sugar to thicken. Use this mini batch with a small cake tip to outline your cookies or decorations first. Let the outline dry and then follow as written. This keeps the icing in the lines and avoids drips like the one in the photo. Tastes great!

I made Christmas cookies with these and the icing hardened nicely. I was out of light corn syrup so I made a simple syrup out of sugar and water. I used 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of water, brought it to a boil over medium heat and simmered for 5 minutes on low heat. I used an electric mixer to mix everything together, then separated into 2 batches and added coloring to one and left one white for the snowmen. My icing didn't come out super white because I used brown turbinado sugar instead of white sugar and I added vanilla extract, which also made it darker, but it still looked white enough. Great recipe!
