Decorating Cookies

Now that you have these wonderful and lovely cookies, you may want to decorate them.  But you may not want to spend all day doing that.  Here are a couple of easy ways to finish them off.

Pretty Pink Glaze


  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 drops of red food coloring
  • red decorating sugar (optional)


Mix the ingredients together, using enough milk to make a relatively thin glaze.

I like to have glaze over the entire cookie, so I dip the bottoms in first and let them dry on a rack.

Then, dip them from the top and sprinkle with red sugar if desired.

Let these cookies dry, and you'll have delicious and beautiful treats!

Gold Bricks


  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


Melt the chips over a double boiler.

When the chips are about half melted, add the corn syrup and shortening.

This is a reasonably thick covering, so I only dip the tops into the melted "gold" mixture.  Once they have cooled and the "gold" has set, I like to outline the the design on the top using a toothpick.  Just makes it show up a little bit better.   Beautiful!  And so yummy.

How do you like to decorate cookies?
