Can someone give me the recipe for the frosting that you put on cookies that is made with meringue powder. They always look so pretty and I want to do this this year. Please and thank you.

Here's the Wilton recipe for the fluffy meringue frosting
Fluffy Boiled Icing
has a marshmallow-like flavor and creates fluffy peaks. Great for icing smooth or decorating borders, writing or stringwork.
3 tablespoons Meringue Powder
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup water
About 8 cups of icing.
Beat meringue powder and 1/2 cup cold water until stiff, about 4 minutes. In microwave safe bowl combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/2 cup water. Heat on high bringing syrup mixture to a boil (approx. 5 minutes). Remove from microwave and let mixture cool slightly (1-2 minutes). Slowly add syrup to meringue mixture. Beat on HIGH for 4 minutes until stiff and glossy.
For top of range: Mix sugar, corn syrup and water in 2 qt. saucepan. Bring to boil; cool slightly and follow directions above.
and here is the recipe for the Royal Icing:
About 3 cups of icing.
Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a heavy-duty mixer, 10-12 minutes at high speed with a hand-held mixer).
NOTE: Keep all utensils completely grease-free for proper icing consistency.
* For stiffer icing, use 1 tablespoon less water.
**When using large countertop mixer or for stiffer icing, use 1 tablespoon less water.
Thinned Royal Icing: To thin for pouring, add 1 teaspoon water per cup of royal icing. Use grease-free spoon or spatula to stir slowly. Add 1/2 teaspoon water at a time until you reach proper consistency.
