Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

Submitted by: Diane 
These cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They are simple to make and kids love to lick the frosting off the tops. Butter flavoring is in the buttercream for added flavor. You can find it in most supermarkets, in the baking aisle, where there are other flavorings such as vanilla.

Here is a frosting like you asked for . . . I wonder if you meant a glaze given the comment about storing in a cookie bin.

Maybe this? Not tried it yet.

I would use this recipe as it tastes good and the royal icings don't.

Marie, thanks for the tip. I haven't made iced cookies in five years so when someone posted this one I thought I'd give it a try.

This one is good but I always have to add extra corn syrup to make it the right consistency. But, yes, it will still dry on the cookie so you can stack them even when you add lots more corn syrup. I have to finish icing some tonight to ship out tomorrow AM.

Meringue powder and confectioners' sugar are the base of this icing.

Royal Icing is what is used on Gingerbread cookies. If you want something that tastes good use the sugar cookie icing recipe. It dries hard enough to stack, has a nice sheen and tastes good.

I add vanilla, almond, and butter flavorings to my royal frosting, makes it much more palatable.

Healthier Sugar Cookie Icing

This healthier version of sugar cookie icing uses low-fat milk and leaves out the corn syrup, however it stills dries hard and shiny with bright colors.

This dries firm, no buttercream is going to be hard though, and will be at risk for smooshing.
