This is the first time I used this for cookies I just want to say “Fabulous!”, My cookies never looked better and tasted great This is 10+star receipt
I LOVE this recipe. I switched from RBC months ago after I got tired of mixing my RBC & MMF (1/2 & 1/2). This is the perfect solution to a less greasy cookie frosting & holds it's shape much better! Thanks soooo much for the recipe!
How does it work on cakes? I used RBF for the first time the other day and it was greasy and had cracks all over. I like the smoothness of MMf and was hoping it would be the same. I was disappointed with it.
Hi Reneesg, I just wanted to let you know that this wasn't meant to put on cakes. It would be way to heavy and tear easily. However on cookies it works like a charm. Hope you give it another chance on some cookies, I love the way it works.
Can't wait to use this!!!
Can a person add flavoring to this? Such as Loranns? Thanks
about how many cookies will this cover?
Nello - yes you can add flavorings I do all the time. Nhopson- Depends on how thin you roll it out. I normally get around 30 to 40 at about a 1/8 inch depth. Enjoy!
Can this be used to do accents on a cake such as flowers, polka dots, etc., instead of using fondant?
Thank you for posting this.............I like the mmf, but sometimes it is hard to work with. I found a recipe earlier that had the mmf, but someone had added the corn syrup and this made it more pliable. But, this is the ultimate....the taste and workability. I am always so grateful to those who take the time to help others make cookies better.
Going to try this today. I have to make 50 elmo cookies for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday! Thank you so much for posting this--it's much appreciated!
How long can I save this in a ziplock bag?
You ROCK! Thanks so much for this recipe...I have to do back to school cookies for 2 schools and this should work out great!! Can't wait to try it thanks again!!!
I had to make 6 dozen cookies today and wanted to try this instead of RBC. It worked very well. It was easier to handle than RBC. (I always have to roll out my RBC and then pop it in the freezer before cutting out my shapes and I was able to eliminate this step using the posted recipe.)And it tasted good. I'll make this again.
thank you for posting this! I like to draw on my royal iced cookies with edible markers. does this dry firm enough to do that? thanks!
This is amazing in taste (tastes just like buttercream) and to work with (as easy as gumpaste. I just made cookies for a nieces wedding and used this for the cake shape on top of the sugar cookies. I had never tried it before, was a little concerned about using a new recipe but I am soooooo glad I did. I added a little butter flavor and almond and it turned out awesome. Thanks for sharing. I love this!!!!!
I posted pics of the cookies today.
can these be placed on warm cookies, or will doing that distort the shape of the RBC? Or is it better to wait and use the piping gel? thanks!
Oh my goodness, this is my new favorite cookie icing! I made some last week and put it on my cookies... my cookies have never tasted better! It worked well placing it on a warm cookie and on a cool cookie. The impression mat I have works well with it, too. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. It's nice to have another option besides royal or fondant.
Can you pipe on this?
is it 4 to 6 lbs of Powdered sugar not 4 to 6 cups??? Just don't want to use all the sugar if it doesn't call for it.
I love this cookie icing! Always gets rave reviews. I have piped on top of this once it sets up, (after it cools) I put it right on the cookie when it comes out of the oven. (have all your icing shapes cut before you bake the cookies!) And yes, 4-6 lbs... ;) But it makes a TON!
What can I use in place of the shortening?
Does this need to be stored in the fridge?
I have stored it in a ziploc or tightly wrapped in plastic wrap in the pantry without issue. There's nothing in it that would require refrigeration, as far as I can tell...
