This simple cookie icing recipe is one that I always turn to whenever we are decorating cookies around our house. It has been in my family for as long as I can remember and isn’t going away anytime soon!
It works great for spreading or piping onto cookies, whichever you prefer. You can also easily make the cookie icing thinner or thicker based on your preferences. You’ll add a little bit more sugar for it to be thicker and a little more milk for it to be thinner. Totally up to you to get the cookie icing to the consistency you prefer.
Here’s my family’s cookie icing recipe perfect for using with our sugar cookie recipe that I’ll share tomorrow. You definitely don’t want to miss it!
- 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
- 1 - 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (clear preferred)
- Stir all ingredients together to make sure well-combined and smooth.
Happy Cookie Making!
