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
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.
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.
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
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!
