Easy Sugar Cookie Icing

When I've made sugar cookie icing in the past I've gone with egg based icing, which uses dried egg white powder. But who wants to buy a specialty ingredient that's hard to find that you've only got one use for, right?

So a few weeks ago I tested a different icing that uses corn syrup instead and from here on out it will definitely my go-to.

There's so many reasons to love it: It's unbelievably easy to make, you just need a bowl and a fork. You'll find it tints nicely holding vibrant colors (and a little food color goes a long way). It pipes beautifully (once you get the right consistency), and it sets to a nice hard layer making it suitable for stacking.

No unique ingredients and you really don't even need special equipment (like a piping bag and tip) if you don't need detailed shapes. I've even used a quart size freezer bag with success, just seal the bag and cut a tiny tip from one corner for that option.

It's the perfect icing for all your holiday and celebratory sugar cookies!
