Meredith White's Snowy Sugar Glaze


  • 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.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure cookies are
    completely cool then coat each cookie with the white glaze.
  2. 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.
  3. To use the same recipe as frosting, simply add a little more
    powdered sugar to thicken.
