Today started in a sweet way and has only gotten sweeter.
Yesterday I made both sugar cookie and chocolate sugar cookie dough. I’ll do separate posts about those recipes later but for now am going to jump into the cookies.
Short and… sweet!
First I baked the vanilla sugar cookies.I subbed vanilla extract for the almond extract due to allergies at schoo.
After that, the chocolate sugar cookies were baked.
Back to the kitchen.
As far as icing goes, I couldn’t find meringue powder so went with an Eggless Royal Icing recipe. I made one batch of plain white icing and then a quadruple batch of hot pink icing.
Eggless Royal Icing
- 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
- 2 tsp. milk
- 2 tsp. corn syrup
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- food coloring
- Using an electric mixer, mix the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
- Add the corn syrup, vanilla and food coloring and beat on low speed until very smooth and glistening.
Add spots of white icing and marble with a toothpick.
