Sugar Cookie Glaze

Bridget Rucki


This glaze dries hard which makes it great for taking along or showcasing in a pretty glass cookie jar. I make sugar cookies iced with this glaze for every event I can think of, from Christmas to the 4th of July. Once you try it you'll love it.

Enough for about 3 doz. cookies.


How to Make Sugar Cookie Glaze


  1. Stir ingredients together with a fork until smooth, adding water a little at a time. You made need more, you made need less. Less water makes a thicker glaze.
  2. It starts out as a white glaze but can be easily altered with any food coloring. I prefer using paste food colorings as not to thin the glaze. In the photo I added a few dots of color on a white iced cookie and swirled it with a toothpick. It drags easily.
  3. So much fun to work with, the possibilities are endless!
