Best Tasting Sugar Cookie Icing - 4 ingredients and 5 minutes! People have been begging for this frosting recipe for years. Now you have it!
Chad and I were married a few days before Christmas, 9 years ago, in a dreamy Winter Wonderland wedding. We had snowflakes and icicles hung everywhere and we were lucky enough to have the coldest day of the year (in Phoenix). We set up a hot cocoa and cookie table in lieu of appetizers and everyone commented on the cookies! So, needless to say after our wedding we decided that the perfect thank you would be snowflake cookies.
Ever since, I have been on a mission to create the perfect cookie. I had the most incredible cookie recipe but I worked for a few years to create the perfect recipe for the icing.
Finally, after so many requests we are sharing it with you today. Perfectly sweetened and flavored with almond to give it an extra something. With only 4 ingredients and about 5 minutes you can whip this icing up. It dries with a gorgeous sheen and tastes amazing!
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
