Natural Cookie Icing

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/natural_cookie_icing.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2013

This natural cookie icing recipe is quick and uses natural dyes to create vibrant colors for decorating cookies. The basic icing recipe makes natural white icing and has substantially less sugar than traditional cookie icing recipes. For creating colored cookie icings, try thawed juice concentrates: cranberry for pink, orange for pale orange or Concord grape for pastel purple.

About 1/2 cup | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Stir together confectioners’ sugar and dried egg whites in a small bowl. Stir in water, corn syrup and vanilla (or almond) extract and drops of natural liquid dye, if using, until completely smooth. To color the frosting with frozen juice concentrate, see variation below.
  2. Use the icing as is for drizzling or stir in more water to thin for spreading or more sugar to stiffen it for piping.
