Sugar cookie icing
has a slightly different texture than traditional icings that makes it perfect for spreading on cookies and drying quickly.
Depending on what kinds of decorating you want to do, you can make this icing thicker or thinner. For a glaze effect, add a little more milk to make the icing thinner. For a coated cookie effect, add less milk. You can also add food coloring to this icing.
