If you want to make super cutesy decorated cookies, you have to make icing. I like that this is thin and easy to spread onto cookies. You could even use a piping bag to decorate your cookies.
2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
food coloring, gel or drops
1. Combine sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk. Beat until fluffy.
2. Add additional milk to thin consistency or moisten if dry.
3. Frost cookies. Let them stand undisturbed so icing can harden.
5. Store unused icing in the fridge. Beat again before using to refresh.
