Vanilla Cookie Glaze Recipe
2 cups strained confectioners sugar, spooned in and leveled
2-3 tbsp hot milk or water, plus additional as needed
1 tbsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Step 1: Place the confectioners sugar in a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Stir with a small whisk or spoon until very smooth. The glaze should pour from a spoon in a steady stream. Use additional liquid sparingly. A little bit goes a long way. Store the glaze tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Step 2: Fill a piping bag halfway with icing and decorate cookies as desired.
Makes about 2/3 cup, enough for 48 2″ cookies
