This is my favorite icing for sugar cookies and even butter cookies. It’s creamy, quick, easy, sweet, and it dries hard, smooth & glossy. If you are looking for a great sugar cookies icing please do not buy that crappy sugar cookies frosting from the store. Your homemade cookies deserve better!!
I think you will find that this homemade recipe is gourmet quality (I know this because I got it from an excellent baker. Heeeeey Louis and thanks for submitting yet another awesome recipe!)
I especially like this icing on sugar cookies because the sweet, vanilla taste compliments it so well.
