This easy sugar cookie icing takes the intimidation out of traditional royal icing recipes. It can be made in one bowl (without a mixer!) and is the perfect recipe to quickly frost your holiday cookies. And much like traditional royal icing, this easy sugar cookie icing dries quickly and develops a hard crust without being crunchy.
Before you run the other way screaming, “I’M SCARED OF ROYAL ICING”, stick with me because friends, this recipe mimics the look of royal icing without all the finicky consistency problems that a lot of people have with it. In the past, I’ve never liked the overly sweet taste or hassle of royal icing but I’ve recently discovered that it just takes the right soft & thick sugar cookie recipe to balance out the taste.
