Cookie "wash"

Recommended Posts

My aunt makes sugar cookies and tops them with a very thin mixture of milk, powdered sugar and food coloring. It is thin and translucent.


Is that what you are talking about?


Hmmmm, maybe. My MIL used to do this thin green wash on Christmas tree cookies, then thicker icing for the "garlands" and balls. She passed away and so I can't ask her. :( Thought someone here might know. I really thought it involved egg, but maybe I'm wrong.

Pioneer woman uses a "paint" made with egg yolks and food coloring for her sugar cookies. You could look it up on her website...
