How to make Cookie Glaze

            Sugar cookie glazes are a family favorite especially in parties, get-togethers, and picnics. We can purchase them in nearby bakeries and pastry shops and even already packaged ones in supermarkets. But if you are interested in making your own  cookies coated with sweet sugar glaze, you have come to the right hub. Below are a few easy recipes to make your own cookie glaze at home. Give it a try and see how your won creation differs from the ones you have tasted before!

            The first recipe I will show you is simple and very easy to do:

What You Need:

2 1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

2 tbsp. light corn syrup

2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. milk

      What To Do:

First, whisk the sugar, corn syrup, two tablespoons of milk together in a bowl. Keep whisking until the mixture is smooth.

Next, use a spatula to spread your cookies with the glaze. Add additional milk if the glaze does not smooth over after one minute. Keep mixing in th milk until the glaze is in the desired consistency.

This next sugar cookie glaze recipe is for a colorful glaze:

What You Need:

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

3 ½ tspn. Milk

¼ tspn. Vanilla extract

2 tbsp. corn syrup

Food coloring of your choice

What To Do:

            First, in a small bowl, mix together the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla extract, and milk until the glaze is smooth. Next, add three to four drops of your choice food coloring and mix well. Add a few more drops until the color is in desired shade.

Second, when cookies are done, hold one cookie on its end and dip it into the glaze. But you can also use a spatula like the first recipe. Place them on cooling racks to dry off.

Make sure to use different colors that go well with one another to make wonderful colored cookies. You can use a colored glazed that contrast with other colored cookies. Use plastic bags and pour in the color you wish to use, snip off the end, then squeeze out he colored glazed to other cookies that go well with it to make multi colored cookies.

            There are many more cookie glazes available wherever you can get them, some of them very specific in flavor and preparation. You can even experiment and start making your own spin on the classic sweet treat! You can make them abased on your current craving or favorite flavors that are not available. So go on and enjoy this delicious treat with your family and friends! Thank you for reading dear reader! Till next recipe!
