A Wonderful Sugar Cookie Glaze

Well, Pinterest you have done it again. This recipe for sugar cookie glaze is amazing. If you are planning on making cookies for the upcoming holidays I highly recommend this one! I just wish I was more talented, but that doesn't stop the fun!

This easy to make glaze stays shiny and turns hard on the surface.

Here is what you need....and some milk. Here is the original post and recipe!

You always feel like it can't be possible...all of this powdered sugar and so little liquid, but it works.  I didn't shift the powdered sugar as requested. I just whipped it a bit with the whisk. I always take short cuts. It seemed to work just fine.

Add color. Follow the food coloring directions.  We chose purple for the bats.

Cookie decorating station all set up. Lucie's little creation station! I just love that my local market has ready to decorate sugar cookies for every holiday! Thanks, Belair! The fun eyes can be found at Michael's and the market now too!

Lucie did a great job! I just allowed her to do her thing.

Look how shiny!

Lucie's ghost! I am an early bird....we were decorating in our PJ's.

Smart Lucas....always thinking outside the box...three eyes! Clever.

Love this glaze!

It's beginning to feel like Halloween!
