This icing is easy to make and dries to a beautifully glossy finish. Just be sure to give the cookies adequate time to dry before packing them up.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-pound) box confectioners sugar
  • 4 teaspoons powdered egg whites (not reconstituted) such as Just Whites
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  • Beat together all ingredients in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until just combined, about 1 minute.
  • Increase speed to high and continue to beat until icing holds stiff peaks, about 3 minutes in a stand mixer or 10 minutes with a handheld. If not using icing immediately, cover surface with a dampened paper towel, then cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Make ahead: Icing can be made 1 day ahead and chilled, its surface covered with dampened paper towel and bowl covered with plastic wrap.
