I need to bake some chocolate chip cookies and add buttercream decorations to it. I use a crusting buttercream, but find it can still be soft and they fall off the cookies. Has anyone ever tried adding a Tbls of mergine powder to buttercream? I was thinking that it may make it a little stronger, but would love suggestions.

I use Macsmom's crusting buttercream recipe and it has 2 tablespoons of meringue powder in it. It's in here if you want to check it out.

Why not use Royal Icing for the decorations? I have used the merengue powder and it does help with crusting.

I typically use royal icing for most of my sugar cookies, however the buttercream has been requested. I think is a taste preference in this case.

The buttercream listed as 'Decorator's Buttercream' on this site has meringue powder in it and is quite yummy. Never thought I would say that about a frosting with shortening in it but...
Sorry, having trouble posting the link...do a search under recipes.

kiki07 the icing you are mentioning is it Toba Garret's? I have looked for decorator's buttercream and it is the only thing using meringue powder

It is posted by SweetSue1. It is called Decorator's Buttercream and is listed under frostings. I'll try to attach.
