Classic Sugar Cookie Icing

Makes enough for about 2 dozen cookies
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 tsp. milk
2 tsp. corn syrup
1 ½ tsp. almond extract
pinch kosher salt

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk or beat all ingredients with an electric mixer until well combined. Whisk in food coloring if desired.



  • This icing is fluid and easy to work with but dries beautifully shiny and hard within 24 hrs., so cookies may be stacked for storage, transport or gifting. 


TASTY TIP: Whisk in a bit of cocoa powder to make a chocolate brown icing (great for reindeer cookies!).
