Simple Cookie Glaze

Simple Cookie Glaze Recipe Simple Cookie Glaze Recipe

This glaze dries hard and shiny, and is perfect for coating the top of your cookies in preparation for decorating with food-safe pens or makers. This glaze is a little on the thick side, and it isn’t perfectly smooth when you apply it, but should settle into a smooth surface within half a minute or so. Glaze one cookie and set it aside for a minute. Has the glaze settled into a smooth surface? If so, it’s the right consistency. Remember, it’s easier to add more liquid than to stir in more sugar, so start with a glaze that’s thicker than you think it should be, then add milk little by little to adjust the consistency.

Nutrition information


  • 2 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon milk
  • Food coloring (optional)

  • 9 ounces confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/4 ounces light corn syrup
  • 1/2 to 1 1/8 ounces milk
  • Food coloring (optional)

  • 255g confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 35g light corn syrup
  • 14g to 32g milk
  • Food coloring (optional)


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together. Stir until smooth; a fork works fine.
  2. The glaze should be thick, but soft enough to “settle” when you spread it. If the glaze is too thick, dribble in another teaspoon of milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time.
  3. Add food color, if you like; gel paste food colors are preferable, as they yield vibrant color, and don’t alter the liquid/sugar ratio as regular food colors might.
