Recently I published a post for Halloween cookies, with Royal Icing. I forgot to give the other recipe for Poured Icing. Royal Icing will dry hard but if you also want your cookies to have a high gloss with hardness, the Poured Cookie Icing recipe will do the trick. I used Royal Icing for my Christmas cookies in “My Christmas Rush” post, which hardened and the icing was thick. I have also used the Poured Cookie Icing recipe, which will dry thin, but shiny and hard like my cookies in my post called,”Cookies, Cookies, Cookies”. After they dried, I then took food coloring and some water and drew on the cookies, giving the butterfly flames, and the other butterfly a clothes line ..lol. I was able to draw on the cookies because they dried hard and white, making a prefect surface for drawing and painting.
