I love painting cookies also and I have the prettiest glossy frosting recipe. This makes an easy to use frosting that will dry with a nice shiny coating.
|•||3 cups powdered sugar|
|•||2 tablespoons milk|
|•||2 tablespoons light corn syrup|
|•||1/2 teaspoon almond, lemon or vanilla extract|
|1.||COMBINE powdered sugar and milk in small bowl. Stir until smooth. Stir in corn syrup and extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If too thick, add more corn syrup.|
|2.||DIVIDE frosting into separate bowls as needed. Stir in food coloring as desired. Dip or brush frosting onto the tops of cookies.|
