Royal Icing
Recipe by Kellie
Tis the Season...
Royal icing recipe with items you probably have at home!

Instructions:
  1. Create a double boiler by boiling water in a small pot.
  2. Top with a mixing bowl that rests just on top of the pot.
  3. Add the egg whites, vanilla, and 2 cups of sugar to the bowl. Whisk very quickly until the mix is hot to the touch. To be EXTRA safe you can heat to 150 degrees, but I just eye balled mine.
  4. Pull off the heat and add 1 tbsp of cream.
  5. Whisk quickly. You should be able to cut with a butter knife and it takes 10-15 seconds to seal back over. Use the cream and sugar to thicken and loose the mix.
  6. Add your food color. ( I prefer gel) Use separate bowls for individual colors and keep the main mix to the side in case you need a thickener. I used Wilton tips 3 and 4.
  7. Make sure you leave at least 15 minutes dry time between ever color. Best to let cookies dry on the counter over night once complete. The icing will keep a lot of moisture in the cookie itself.
Ingredients:
  • Heavy cream x 3 tablespoon
  • Egg whites x 2
  • Powder sugar x 3 cup
  • cream of tartar x 1/2 teaspoon
  • Vanilla extract x 1 teaspoon
