Butter Icing for Cookies
December 16, 2005

This recipe is wonderful! I needed an icing that would dry semi hard - so my decorations wouldn't smudge/ fall apart or off, yet, not be rock hard like royal frosting. This works great! It hardens, but NOT too hard. yet was soft enough for us to eat. All my gingerbread man decorations stayed on perfect! This frosting is also Creamy and flavorful and you dont need alot on any cookie to get the benefits of it.(sweetness wise) - which makes it go further. I made the mistake of coating a cookie with it completely, and wow! overkill! You just need a little bit to get that sweet flavor and really perk up the cookies. All my colors blended in nicely too. If the mix starts to get a little hard while you are doing other things, just stir in a little hot water till you get the consistency back that you need. It will still harden up later with no problems. You can also nuke icing bags for 10 seconds if the icing hardens in it as well. Im going to use this recipe forever! thanks!
