This icing works wonderfully for cookies or as a glaze for cakes. While its simplicity might seem too good to be true, this frosting is a crowd-pleaser!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract (may use peppermint, orange, almond or other extract in the alternative)
  • Milk (dairy or non-dairy), fruit juice or liqueur
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

Whisk together the sugar, extract and milk by gradually adding the milk, a teaspoon or so at a time.  Continue adding liquid until the frosting is the consistency you need for your dessert.  The thinner the icing, the better if you are drizzling it over a cake or cookie; the thicker it is, the better, if you want to have a firmer coating.

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!

Pin it for later!
