Sugar Cookie Glaze


This cookie glaze dries quickly to a hard, shiny finish. Perfect as a base coat for cookies. It can be colored to suit any occasion; use as much food coloring as needed to create the desired hue. Stir glaze each time you use it to prevent it from drying with a mottled look instead of a solid color.
