Sugar Cookie Icing


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups icing sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tsp white vanilla extract (Watkins or Wilton brand, if possible)


Now, this is EASY…

  1. Using an electric mixer, combine the butter, whipping cream and vanilla. 
  2. Add the sifted icing sugar, 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate the icing smoothy.
  4. Whip the icing until it’s fluffy and smooth. 
  5. Add desired colouring.
  6. Scoop some icing into a piping bag with your chosen tip and decorate your cookies however you like!

I like to use a #3 tip to outline my cookies with white icing, then I colour the remainder of the icing and pipe it on using a star tip.
