I'm a fanatic for the NFSC (No-Fail Sugar Cookie) in the recipe section here. And my favorite icing is the glacé icing that GeminiRJ has in one of her posts - it may be in the recipes, too, I'm not sure. It's kind of like royal icing, but with some corn syrup in it, which gives it a whole different texture and taste.

Thank you!! I have decided to go with the NFSC icon_smile.gif do you happen to have GerminiRJ's royal icing recipe? I did a search and cant seem to find it.

Yes - I didn't save the thread, but I copied it into a document of my own. Here it is:

GeminiRJ's Glacé icing

3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
3 tablespoons skim milk (or other type milk, or water)
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1/2 tsp. clear vanilla or almond extract (optional)
15 drops brite white food color (optional) I use Americolor brand

Mix the first four ingredients until well blended. (I just use a mediumsize bowl and a spoon). You will want the icing to be the consistency of white school glue. To thin, add more corn syrup. To thicken, add more powdered sugar. If it is really thick, add equal amounts of milk and corn syrup. Add the brite white and mix well. (The brite white seems to help prevent the icing from getting cloudy and spotty when it dries). Divide and color.

Note: leftover icing will stay fresh in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

I tried a lot of different cookie recipes in the last year, and it is NFSC hands down. I do leave out some of the baking powder which helps the cookies keep their shape better. I also love the Chocolate cutout recipe that is on CC. That one has no baking powder and has a good fudgy taste to the cookie.
