RECIPE: Sugar Cookie Frosting (White Icing)

frosting

I have never made white icing before, instead always using the pre-made stuff in the plastic tubs. However, today I wanted to make some sugar cookies (CLICK HERE for my Roll Out Sugar Cookie recipe!); and since we’re snowed in and I couldn’t get to the store, I went in search of a good white frosting for cookies.

I found this one online and decided to give it a go….and it is amazing! It tastes very much like the frosting that a popular bakery in town used to make before they closed last year. I will definitely be making this frosting again, not just for cookies but cakes, too!
