Corn Syrup Sugar Cookie Icing

I had eaten this sugar cookie icing before, but hadn't used it until last week.  It's hard to tell since there were red sugar crystals sprinkled over it and there's a drip on one of the cookies in the photo, but it sure seems to stay on the cookie well.  Plus, it tastes really good, too!  The glossiness of the icing is probably the best part - especially when the icing is plain and not coated with sugar.  It's a pretty finish, so perfect for your cookies.


1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
assorted food coloring

In a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and vanilla extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.  Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. To decorate cookies, use one or more of the following methods: Pipe icing from pastry bag, spoon icing onto cookies, dip cookies, or paint them with a brush.
