This tastes wonderful. Hardens so you can stack or bag the cookies, but is still soft to bite into.
Alice’s Cookie Icing
- 1# sifted powdered sugar (1 pound equals 4 cups)
- 3 TBSP. meringue powder
- 5-6 TBSP water for a thin consistency
- 1/2 cup butter
- Cream butter, add sugar & meringue powder, then add water. For a stiff consistency to make a dam on the cookies, I beat in 2-3T of water first, remove some icing for stiff consistency, then add more water until it is very thin & flows like color flow.
