I am looking for a thin icing for cookies.

I am looking for a recipe for a thin white icing which dries shiny and glazed looking for the tops of cookies. Can you please help me? Thank you. Del


Here's an easy recipe for thin icing. Using a pastry brush makes application of the icing as easy as it gets.

Thin Icing

2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Food coloring (optional)

1. Stir together all ingredients until smooth and thin enough to brush onto cookies using a pastry brush. If icing is too thick, add small amounts of milk at a time until consistency works for you. Tint with food coloring, as desired.

Makes about 2 cups.
