EASY Cookie Icing (No meringue powder or egg whites)

Here's a ridiculously easy cookie icing that I used to decorate these fun scary Halloween - No Fridge Needed Sugar Cookies.

It gives you that nice and shiny icing that hardens perfectly so that you can stack your cookies or for treat bags!  And unlike Royal Icing it doesn't have egg whites or egg white (meringue) powder (which saves you time and money) and it doesn't make your cookies rock hard.


1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 tsp corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon extract (vanilla or almond!)


1. Add your powdered sugar to a medium sized bowl and to that bowl add your milk and your corn syrup.  Mix well.  Then add your extract and slowly add more milk and corn syrup until you get the consistency you prefer.  More runny for flooding or more thick for well, a more thick icing! (I usually end up using 3 tsp of milk and 3 tsp of corn syrup.)

*NOTE: If you want really white icing you need to use clear vanilla extract.

2. Add the color's you want and mix.
