This recipe was perfect for what I needed. I used half water and half milk instead of all water. I also cut the salt in half because many reviews said it was too salty. My frosting tasted wonderful! Read More

This icing was WAAAYY to salty! It made the cookies taste awful. I had to scrap it off and replace it with a butter icing. I suggest either leaving out the salt or using another recipe for the icing. Read More

I made some changes to this recipe to suit my tastes a little. Instead of water I added milk since it milds out the powdered sugar. I added less salt (1/4 tsp). I also added only 1/4 tsp vanilla and added 1/4 tsp peppermint extract. It's good Read More

I used this frosting with the easy valentine cookies and it tastes fine. It came out one of the best sugar cookies I've ever made. I didn't make any changes except it was dry and all you have to do is add a little water at a time until you get the consistency you want or until it is easy to spread as clearly stated in the directions. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This recipe left me very confused! I didn't get anything like a frosting with this. I got hard chunks of confectioners sugar. The first review said she added 'more milk'. I didn't see milk on the recipe at all. Was I supposed to add milk? I imagine that would help. It was certainly lacking moisture. Read More
