Best store bought frosting for cookies?

Is there a good/decent brand of icing that would work well for sugar cookies that I can buy? I'm not a big baker but once in a while the mood strikes

I've never come across any that work with cookies because most store icing is for cakes so it stays gooey. I have made easy icings with powdered sugar that work with cookies, more of a glaze or just dipping them in melted chocolate chips.

Check out Taste of Home and do a search for sugar cookie glaze, it's so easy

I dont know aboout store bought icing but if you wanted to make some you could with ingredients you most likely already have in your home....

margerine or butter
powdered sugar
vanila

you can make a lot or a little depending on how much you need .Put the butter or margerine in a dish pour enough powdered sugar to cover and add a couple drops of vanilla. If it is too wet add more sugar ...too dry add more butter etc.

I do something similar, only with milk instead of the butter. Just add about a teaspoon of vanilla to the powdered sugar, then add milk about 1 tsp at a time until you get it to the right consistency. You can add food coloring if you want or just use it white. I'm not real good with stuff like this, but this has always worked really well for me.

One thing I have done is just buy the cheapy canned store frosting, and put it in a Pyrex measuring cup -- melt in the microwave and add coloring. Pour over cookies on a cooling rack over a plate or a foil-covered cookie sheet (so you can re-use frosting when it rehardens).

The frosting glazes and covers the cookie smoothly -- dries well as I recall (it's been a number of years).

For our gingerbread, we decorate with Royal Icing - http://www.mccormick.com/Recipes/Des...royal_icing-ex.

Have fun!
