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.

  1. Hi Robyn,

    Just a question, can I make this with anything other than cows milk?
    Would nut milks work? Or even water in a pinch?
    I’m making cookies with a group of work colleagues so just want to provide alternatives if possible.

    Thanks!
