Royal Icing

Royal Icing

4 Tablespoons meringue powder
1/2 cup water
1 lb powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon light corn syrup

1. Combine the meringue powder and water. With the paddle attachment of an electric mixer, beat until combined and foamy.
2. Sift in the powdered sugar and beat on low to combine.
3. Add in the corn syrup. Increase speed to med-high and beat for 5 minutes, just until the icing is glossy and stiff peaks form. This icing is now ready for outlining or decorating cookies.

***To fill in your cookies with icing, add water to your icing a teaspoon at a time, stirring with a rubber spatula, until it is the consistency of syrup.
