I don't usually ice sugar cookies, but just got an order for some. I'm looking for an icing that is thick like buttercream and also "soft." Don't want anyone losing a tooth! icon_smile.gif

Why dont you just use buttercream. I have put buttercream on sugarcookies before. They are yummy. Attached are some shamrocks that are sugar cookes with buttercream icing.

I do. I think the buttercream really brings out the flavor of the cookies. Love it!

I use a recipe called Alice's cookie icing. It is a modified royal icing recipe. The icing sets so that you could stack the cookies, but still it soft when you bite into the cookie. It has a wonderful buttery taste to it.

I cover mine in fondant. I use the same cookie cutter I used to make the cookie to cut out the fondant shapes then glue them to the cookie using water. They do not get soggy and sticks very well.

For those of you who use buttercream on your cookies, how do you transport your cookies? I would be afraid that the buttercream may smear if you put them in the cellophane bags.

The buttercream will still crust and get hard, so you can handle them easily.

What do you wrap your buttercream iced cookies in? Or how do you transport them?

I actually do the cellophane bags. I have stacked them before and have had no problems (but I wasn't going far). So I'm not sure if this would be okay for long distances.
