Baby Dea's Cookie Icing...

Thread Starter 
Thanks, Dailey! I did not get to see any thread on this subject, so please tell me, does it get shiny like a glace, or is it matte?

Thanks!

Thanks Dailey, I'm definitely going to try this. Quick question, since it uses melted candy melts, can I still use my Americolor gels to color it or will it sieze up?

your welcome: )

playingwithsugar, i think they dry kinda in between the two. if you look in the cookie section of my website toward the bottom, the pink hearts, lips and cupcakes were done with this icing.

fraggelrock1,
yes, it takes colors beautifully. i pretty much only used americolor.

Does this icing dry hard enough to stack/wrap the cookies and if so how long does it take to dry?

Thanks 4 Sharing!

I hope this isn't a dumb question icon_redface.gif

The recipe calls for heavy cream. Is this the same cream you find in refrigerated milk isle?

I searched to see if heavy cream needs refrigeration and I found this post about Ganache.

"Because of its high content of sugar and fat. Micro-organisms need water to grow. When the sugar content is so high, the sugar binds the water in such a way that micro-organisms cannot utilize it. Technically its called "water activity control."

Is this true?

What do you mean by 'double strength' vanilla?
I've seen the Loranns and don't recall seeing this. Thank you!
Also wondering if these need to be refrigerated due to the heavy cream?

Watkins sells a double strength vanilla. I LOVE their vanilla nut. Wonderful in pancakes!

Edited to say, their clear vanilla is imitation. Bummer....... I've only used their dark vanilla. I get my clear vanilla from a local cake supply shop.

Do the cookies need refrigeration since the icing is made with heavy cream?

cupofbutter,
yes, they dry hard. i bag all of my cookies in cello with ribbon after about 24 hours. the great part about these though is while they are "hard" on top, they are soft underneath.

crolfes83,
yes, heavy whipping cream is in the same isle as the milk. i *love* the taste it gives baked goods so i knew i had to incorporate it somehow when i came up with this recipe.

as far as refrideration, they are fine left out. this recipe has so much sugar in it that the small amount of heavy cream isn't a problem. you *could* substitute water for the heavy cream...but don't...the heavy cream gives it such a rich flavor.

oh, Lorann carries both real vanilla and imitaiton at hobby lobby, of all the fake vanilla's i've tried, the double strength stuff tastes the best and doesn't have that "funny" smell. i used pure vanilla for all of my other baking but you will want to used the clear stuff for this icing...unless you don't mind it tan!
