I thought that perhaps Linderhof posted her recipe she uses for frosting cookies here recently. Now I can't find it.
Would someone advise or perhaps Linderhof might post it again? I am baking & decorating tea cookies for Saturday.
Thanks in advance!
If you're refering to the Mint Julep Cookies, the frosting is under Run for the Roses thread.
I frost sugar cookies two ways -- first is just a simple buttercream but when I'm going to "bag" cookies for gifts (or when I paint cookies), I use a Royal icing -- 3 cups powdered sugar, 2 egg whites (and I use the powder instead of real eggs because it's safer) and the juice of 1 lemon. Mix powdered sugar and egg whites for about 5 minutes until thick -- add lemon juice and beat for a while longer. If it's still too thick, I add a drop or two of either milk or water.
I do find that the icing made with the powder is really smoother than the one made with real eggs.
It does make a very nice smooth icing and some commented once about how "untasty" Royal Icing is but actually with the lemon juice it has a great lemony flavor IMO.
You could also make the glaze that I did for my mint julep cookies with powdered sugar and enough water to make it of the consistency that you want. It dried hard enough that you could stack the cookies.
Hope this helps, Lurah.

Thanks for posting your Royal Icing recipe.
I've used that before for making roses for cake decorations and decorating hollow sugar eggs.
I was confused with your frosting posts and viewing a friends business blog. She mentioned she's found a nice glazing icing that doesn't harden like Royal icing that she uses on her detailed cookies. Course I prefer not to ask her for the recipe.
For these tea cookies, I think I'll do the powdered sugar glaze.
Your cookies are just as lovely as Ann's.
Keep up your lovely work.
Why not ask her for the recipe? It may also be found on her blog.
I wouldn't dream of asking Ann for her frosting recipe because her business is baking, frosting and decorating cookies and cakes and other pastries.
Another person commented on the blog that she would like Ann's recipe for frosting and dough and that offended me as quite bold and RUDE.
It's like asking Col. Sanders for his chicken seasoning recipe.
