Meredith White's Snowy Sugar Glaze
Here is the glaze recipe for my decorated tree cookies. Use the snowy sugar glaze to cover the cookies first, then use colored
glaze to decorate in straight lines, drizzles, squiggly lines or
dots. Let the glaze dry and harden to create a perfect work surface.
Do not use egg yolk on cookies after they have been baked.
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
*Few drops green food color
*Food Coloring comes in two forms, paste or liquid. The paste makes the most vivid and varied colors, but liquid can also work well.
Start with a tiny amount of food coloring and add more until desired
color is reached.
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure cookies are
completely cool then coat each cookie with the white glaze.
- To make colors, remove one of tablespoon glaze to several custard cups. Add 1 or 2 drops of food coloring to each. Make some tints and some darker colors for creative decorating. Use a small brush or toothpick to swirl colors into desired patterns on cookies.
- To use the same recipe as frosting, simply add a little more
powdered sugar to thicken.
