It’s super easy with this dipping technique – no piping required! Start by making your favorite cookie recipe and this fool-proof glaze icing recipe and dying it whatever color you want.
Glaze Icing Recipe
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 tablespoons water (more may be needed)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract ( or flavor of your choice)
a few drops of food coloring
Mix the powdered sugar along with corn syrup and water and extract until it’s smooth and creamy.
The glaze worked best when it’s was not runny. I ran my spatula through the icing and drew a line, it too about 5 seconds for it to fill back in where I drew the line. Adjust the water so it’s fluid, but not runny.
Extract and food coloring are both in liquid/gel form, so adjust accordingly if you add more, you may need more powdered sugar.
What you’ll need to dip:
The trick is to pour your icing in an oval dish and strap a lollipop stick with a rubber band under the dish attaching to each side of the stick like this:

First, toss in your cookie so that one side is coated in icing.
Carefully pick up the cookie, and gently wipe off the excess with the lollipop stick.
Transfer to a flat surface so the icing can harden evenly.
– Cookies that are a little thicker (like the ones on top iced in red) were less messy as there was more cookie to grab onto and my fingers didn’t need to touch the icing.
– Glaze icing dries hard, if you let them icing air dry for 12 hours before stacking cookies or packaging them.
