Sugar Cookie Icing

Sugar cookie icing is so simple to make! This simple cookie icing recipe is the perfect complement to the best sugar cookie recipe, which is also very easy and so buttery tasting!

You can really let your creativity soar when you add just a few drops of food coloring to this white icing. The possibility for your Christmas sugar cookies, Halloween cookies and Easter cookies are endless!

Icing for Sugar Cookies

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla (or almond, lemon, or peppermint)
  • Enough liquid to make the icing spread (1 to 1/2 tablespoons of water, cream, or orange juice)
  • A drop or two of food coloring if desired

Blend all of the ingredients (except food coloring) in a bowl. Once the icing is made, tint if desired. Spread the icing on the sugar cookies using a spatula or a pastry brush. More liquid may be used if the icing isn't spreadable. Be careful not to add too much liquid.

If using icing in a pastry tube, reduce the amount of liquid in the icing recipe to about 3/4 tablespoons. You want just enough liquid to make the icing easy to force through a pastry tube. Adding too much liquid will prevent you from being able to control the icing that comes from the tube!
