Easy cookie decorating
6 quick ways to dress up your favorite recipes
Step 1: Glaze
Prepare the glaze (whisk together 1 cup powdered sugar and 21/2 tsp. milk), and dip the cookies face down in it. Let them dry. Shortcut: Skip the glaze for a more natural look.
Step 2: Pipe
Using a plain, super-fine pastry tip, pipe on ribbons of your favorite homemade royal icing. Shortcut: Use ready-made icing in a small (0.68) tube, sold at most grocery stores.
