Easy glaze recipe to decorate cookies

 


If you are thinking about how you can lower the cost of your decorated cookies or an alternate way to decorate your cookies this post might help you. 

One of the more expensive ingredients in the decorated cookies is the meringue powder and if you like to have a very nice looking cookie you might need to invest in a good quality meringue powder, and this will increase the cost of your cookies. 

You can also make the royal icing using egg whites, but as you may know, we used raw egg whites and this can lead to some food contamination if not handle appropriately. 

This glaze recipe is very easy to do and the cookies look really nice, the flavor is similar to the royal icing, give it a try and see what you costumers think about this thin glazed cookies. 


For this glaze recipe you will need :

  1. One cup + 6 tsp of powder sugar
  2. One tbsp of light corn syrup
  3. 3 tbsp + 1tsp milk
  4. Few drops of clear vanilla extract or any citric juice

PROCECURE:

Sift your powder sugar at least one time.

You can add food coloring if you want and make a test covering a cookie with the glaze and see if it runny enough to slide on the cookie without being lumpy or to runny.

You can use regular royal icing if you want to add some decorations and also you can use edible markers once the icing is completely dry.

  • When I make gingerbread houses I need help and it is always a family project, so I love the part that is a very social activity and it requires team work to be successful in building it.

  • LOVE how my house smell when the cookies are baking!

I think that if I think a little bit more I still can find more reasons why I love to make this kind of cookies. 

In this project I used a lot of edible glitter, sanding sugars and royal icing.

For this occasion we made a Haunted mansion gingerbread house, it was not very easy, because it was a rainy day, I made the cookies with a lot of intricate cut-outs and this make the cookies very fragile, but after all the house came out really nice.

I recommend that when you are going to make gingerbread houses make 2 pieces of each piece of your house, so if one breaks, so have an extra piece. 


I also like that when you are building it, you need to be creative and think out of the box and find little things the can help you support all the pieces in place.

This Halloween might be very different for most of all of us, but we will need to find a way to still have fun and visit with our neighbors and be sweet with the kids in our neighborhood in a safe way.

I think building this little haunted house will be a great activity for all ages in this Tick or Treat 2020!

Few years ago I purchased a kit to make a mini piñata, and finally I had the time to make it, it was really nice that everything came already cut and it was very easy to assemble. 

I really like the idea of the piñata to put some of the candy cookies I made. 

Here is the video and you can see how I made it!


While making the mini piñata, I came with the idea to make a little "Piñata style" Trick or treat favor using a cookie cutter as the template and some black tissue paper.
