  • POURED ICING THAT HARDENS
    Anyone have a really good recipe for an icing that you pour over cookies to cover them, it then hardens and then you can decorate?
    Thanks for your help.

    The top layer from Buckeye Cake hardens fairly well. You might try it.

    1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
    1/4 cup Hershey’s cocoa
    1/3 cup milk
    1 lb. confectioners’ sugar
    1/4 tsp. vanilla

    In a medium saucepan, melt butter, cocoa and milk together. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla. Stir completely. Pour icing on top of cooled cookies.

    Ellie, if you will melt ready-to-use icing in the microwave just until it softens enough to drizzle, but not be completely melted, it will harden when it cools completely and be very smooth. I usually put half a can of it in a glass measuring cup and heat on high for 10 to 12 seconds. Then I can just pour it from the spout on the cup. I always use this as a glaze on tea breads and pound cakes. White Chocolate Almond is my favorite, but other flavors work too.

    Sugar Cookie Glaze
    This glaze will dry to a hard shiny finish. Perfect as a
    base coat for cookies. Can be colored too; use as much food
    coloring as needed to create desired hue. Dries quickly. Makes
    0.5 cup glaze (24 servings).

    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 tablespoon light corn syrup
    2 tablespoons water
    10 drops food coloring


    Directions
    1 Stir confectioners' sugar, corn syrup, and water
    together. Stir in food coloring if desired. This glaze must be
    stirred each time you use it. If it is not stirred before
    each use it will dry with a mottled look instead of a solid color
