It’s Tips for Tuesday!

This week’s tip: Use a basic glaze when decorating cookies!

My favorite way to decorate cookies is to make a basic glaze.  It is super simple and can be made in minutes.  It also gives you a variety of decorating options and is very forgiving.  The next time you have cookies to decorate, give it a try!

2 1/2 tsp. liquid (water, milk, lemon or lime juice, etc.)
1/2 cup powdered sugar

The sky is the limit when decorating:

  • Use the glaze as is and create a translucent white topping.
  • Dye the glaze with food coloring.
  • Use the glaze as the ‘glue’ to adhere colored sugar, sprinkles, or non-parallels.

Mix the liquid and powdered sugar together.  Use a food safe paint brush or pastry brush to apply the glaze.  Adjust the glaze consistency if needed, by adding a little liquid or powdered sugar.

This is a super simple way to decorate cookies and add wow to your creations. I will have a delicious cookie topped with glaze on Thursday, so stay tuned 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
