Before you tell me that frosting a cookie is not rocket science, save your breath.
Duh it's not. Rocket science is rocket science.
However, if you want to get that just brought from the bakery look- read a little further.
Now, if you use store bought frosting- it'll be thick enough to create a shape, but won't be slick and shiny! Heartbreaking, I know.
What you'll need to make it happen:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter
2-3 teaspoons milk
Food coloring optional
* the butter is not 100% necessary- but it will make the icing super shiny and lovely. promise.
How to make it happen:
There you have it. Simple, slick, shiny cookies.
Do you have a trick to making your cookies look bakery worthy?
Share away, I'm always looking to improve!
