Sugar Cookies with Glacé Icing

I love all the beautiful sugar cookies I’ve been seeing online lately and when I stumbled upon Our Best Bites Glacé Icing recipe I immediately wanted to try it. I’m not a fan of royal icing nor buttercream, so an icing that is “super forgiving, easy to use, and it actually tastes good” sounded like a must try.

I was lucky enough to have my sweet foodie friends, Becky, Vintage Mixer, and Tiffany, Food Finery and her beautiful daughters, join me in the kitchen to try our hand at this fun new icing technique.

I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe. It puffs up a bit more than other sugar cookie recipes I’ve tried, but it’s tender and delicious and I’ve yet to find one I like better.
