Ingredients

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 teaspoons low-fat milk

  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 dash assorted natural food coloring

Directions

  1. Combine white sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, simmering until dissolved and a sugar syrup is created, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir together confectioner's sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Beat in almond extract and 2 teaspoons of sugar syrup until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more sugar syrup.

  3. Optional: Divide icing into separate bowls and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. Dip cookies or paint them with a brush.
