The proportions for this are way off. I had to add water which worked out fine, It allowed me to make different consistencies for flooding and piping. Didn't care for taste so I added juice of a half lemon (which many other recipes call for) *I did double recipe to start*, added 1 tsp pure vanilla and 1/4 tsp pure almond extract and a pinch of salt to cut the sweet. Can adjust flavoring..but I found we liked it w/more lemon, then vanilla and a touch of almond. Do not use lemon flavoring. Use real lemon juice from a fresh squeezed lemon. (not even the one already squeezed from store, the real thing makes a huge difference). I'd use this recipe again with these changes. It worked out great. Had a nice gloss, dried hard but not like royal icing , just hard w/ a nice bite. I could stack w/out any damage, although I always use wax paper in between too. Used it to make these pinterest cookies and really liked the glaze vs. royal icing.
