I wanted to find a great icing recipe for my cookies this year, and I came across this one from www.allrecipes.com. It is really easy, pipes well and hardens nicely. I will be using this one again.
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons cream
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a saucepan, over medium heat, heat cream and butter until butter is melted. Stir in the vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Remove from heat, and beat with an electric mixer until thick and smooth.
