Ice that Cookie with 5 Ingredients

What better way to ice the Quick and Easy Tea Cookies other than using a 5-Ingredient icing?! You can adjust the consistency of the icing to fit what you need.

When I bake tea cookies, I enjoy decorating the cookies for what I need. For WP’s 4th Birthday, I made fire trucks and the number 4 to look like Dalmatians. For KM’s 2nd party, he wanted PJ Mask themed. I made the #2 and made them red, green, and blue.

the 5 Ingredients

  • food coloring
  • 1 Tablespoon milk (maybe a little more to get desired consistency)
  • 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 2 cups confections sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (can substitute for almond or lemon)

What to do

  • Sift the confections sugar (make sure there are no little balls and it is all smooth)
  • add in the milk and stir until smooth
  • stir in the light corn syrup and extract
  • divide into smaller bowls in order to add food coloring as needed

I dip the cookies into the mixture to coat it. If I need detail, I use paint brushes and paint sponges to detail how I need. The options are endless!!!

Let the beautiful cookies sit after icing so it can harden. Enjoy!!

 

I would love to know what you think! Please leave me your suggestions and comments.

Quick and Easy Tea Cookies

https://pin.it/2Rcrtq7

One of my staples for any party is making Tea Cookies. It is super cheap; you probably already have most, if not all of the ingredients already. It goes a LONG way; one batch made 96 cookies. And it is EXTREMELY easy; literally the most time consuming part is cutting the cookies out)

Before beginning, make sure you have a CLEAN and SANITZIED, semi-large FLAT surface. You need this to roll out the cookie dough.

LET’S BEGIN:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (can be substituted for other extract flavors)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup flour

DIRECTIONS:

  • Cream butter and sugar in LARGE bowl. (to cream the butter, simple use a fork or a whisk and beat until smooth and creamy)
  • add in egg and extract, continue beating until smooth
  • slowly add is flour and baking powder.
  • using your hands, mix and work all ingredients together until mixture is consistency of cookie dough (if more flour is needed, add more flour a little at a time).
  • using the 1 cup of flour, sprinkle onto the flat surface
  • also using the 1 cup of flour, apply flour to rolling pin
  • roll out cookie dough to desired thickness
  • use cookie cutter to cut out cookies
  • lightly grease a cookie sheet
  • place cookies on cookie sheet
  • bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool before icing them. For a super easy, super quick icing recipe, head on over to Ice That Cookie!
