Stained Glass Cookies

More stained glass-Like the Easter cross, these are NFSC topped with MMF. I changed up the glaze-paint and decided if I added a teaspoon of cornstarch to the mix that it would help the loooong drying time...and it worked (from 24-30 hrs drying time down to just 10hrs) but the glaze dried with more of a matte finnish and I liked it better shiney (like the Easter cross) Here's the recipe for the simple glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup water, 1TB cornsyrup. Mix with a wisk for way longer than you ever imagined until the glaze has no lumps and is mostly clear (will be a little cloudy) This is enough glaze to paint about 500 cookies LOL I put about a TB of glaze into a watercolor palette and mixed the color in using a stiff small paintbrush- the color has to be mixed really well or else there's little color globs floating around. And like I said earlier it's a long drying time- if you add cornstarch it will dry quicker but will also have a less shiney, translucent result.
