Peanut Butter Icing / Frosting for Cookies

“Thick frosting that dries sort of shiny - perfect for cookies that need to be stacked and taken somewhere. I like the recipes I've seen for plain icing that dries, and played with it to make a peanut butter version since my father in law is always asking for peanut butter cookies. Prep time doesn't include frosting the cookies, which will vary depending on how detailed you get. I iced 32 (2-3") cookies.”

Directions

  1. Measure everything into mixing bowl. You want a thick pasty frosting, so start with just a little milk, and add enough to get a spreadable consistency. Beat well with a fork. Add additional corn syrup or milk if needed.
  2. You can separate the icing into bowls and add different colors if desired.
  3. Spread on cookies with butter knife. Allow to dry for about an hour, longer if you used a heavy layer.
