I need a new cookie frosting. The one I've been using just isn't working out.
Can someone give me a recipe they use that they love?
I don't have a lot of time to try out a whole lot, so I'm looking for one that's been "tried and true"
You'll find two "tried and true" recipes on here. Many swear by Antonia74's Royal Icing. Others do well with Toba's Glace or one like it. That's my personal choice, I prefer the flavor.
However, a glace will not hold shapes as well as royal icing, so it depends on what you are wanting to do.
Thanks so much! I'll try Toba's first.
I posted the one I use on my thread, but I can post it for you here too..=)
2 pounds powdered sugar (only use C&H)
3 tablespoons meringue
2/3 cups water or enough to get it to the consistency that you want
flavoring up the ying yang to get rid of the meringue taste (I am not kidding when I say this. I think I used about 8 to 10 tsp of flavoring today in mine. I favor half almond half vanilla and occassionally will throw lemon in the mix.)
beat for about 5 to 7 minutes.....
This is my favorite...........I also add 1/4 tsp creme bouquet to the recipe. It dries enough so you can stack or wrap them yet it's still "chewy" when you bite into it. I love it! It has a nice shine to it too.
