Oops it's me again, is late here in CA and I'm just trying to plan ahead to make my life easy!! LOL
Where can I find Antonia74's royal icing recipe? or any icing recipe for cookies that tastes good and dryies fast? To much asking hu?
I used to use royal icing, I made mine with one egg white, 1/2 pound, powdered sugar and natural lemon juice to thin and for flavor, but sometimes it takes more than 2 days to dry. May be there is a better recipe out there waiting for me!!
Thanks in advance for your patience!

Found this, hope this helps.
I printed it out and taped it in my cabinets.
Also, it helps to have a scale.

I don't have a scale for the four ounces but I've used just a two pound bag with no problems. I also found it dries pretty quickly. I usually do mine at night and let them dry overnight, they never take 24 hours for me, I think barely 12 is good. I would let them sit a bit longer if you really want to make sure the icing won't "dent".

I don't think that's right. A 2 pound bag of powdered sugar has about 7.5 to 8 cups in it, so I think you're going to need closer to 9 cups to do this recipe. One kilogram is about 2 1/4 pounds.

The one I use of Antonia74 has cream of tartar in it as well.  This recipe may not be right.

AThis is the link to Antonia74's icing: the earlier link goes to blissful's royal icing. In her recipe, she says that 1Kilogram is equal to about 2lbs 4oz of powdered sugar (icing sugar). I just use a 2lb bag of powdered sugar.

I also read on another post (can't find it at the moment) that you can stick them in the oven for a little bit and they'll dry faster... I've never tried that, has anyone done that?

Thank you!  I cut Antonia's recipe down yesterday but it seemed to take forever to get enough water in it for 10 second rule.  I had used Peggy Porschen's recipe earlier in the day but couldn't get it to work. Probably most recipes will work if right consistency.  Still, I did better with Antonia's and it dried pretty quickly... Happy Valentine Day!
