How to Make Homemade Cookie Glaze


You'll find that a sugar cookie glaze that hardens as it sets, is the best kind of topping to use when it comes to making a shiny and glossy topped cookie.


Mango and Vanilla Flavored Cookie Glaze Recipe


What You'll Need
  1. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  2. 2 teaspoons of mango extract
  3. 1 cup of confectioners' sugar
  4. Food coloring of your choice
  5. 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup
  6. 2 teaspoons of milk
How to Make This

Use a small bowl to blend together the milk and sugar, before adding in the mango and vanilla extract along with the corn syrup. Stir these ingredients together until it turns shiny and smooth. You can separate this mix into different bowls, adding food coloring of your choice to each one before decorating your cookies. Using a small paintbrush, slather atop the cookie a layer of this mix, before keeping it to one side to slightly harden. You can always drop atop this some chocolate shavings for a richer finish. If you'd like the glaze to be less thick when stirring the ingredients together, add a little more corn syrup for some flexibility.


Cookie Glaze Recipe with Almond Extract and Dark Chocolate Chips

What You'll Need
  1. 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  2. 1 cup of confectioners' sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons of milk
  4. 1 packet of dark chocolate chips
  5. Food coloring (optional)
  6. 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup
How to Make This

Merge the sugar, milk, almond extract and corn syrup; for vibrant colors, you can always add a few droplets of food coloring. Intensify the color of the glaze by adding in more food coloring - to make it more eye-pleasing, you can look up a color chart and combine different colors to produce new and interesting ones. Once you have the mix ready, gently coat each cookie with the glaze, and then strategically place the dark chocolate chips atop each one. Set it to one side when you're done decorating. You'll have a nice sapid dark chocolate glazed cookie that everyone is sure to enjoy. You can always use milk chocolate chips or even white chocolate, to experiment with flavors.


Peanut Covered Cookie Glaze Recipe


What You'll Need
  1. 2 teaspoons of milk
  2. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  3. 1 packet of unsalted peanuts
  4. 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup
  5. 1 cup of confectioners' sugar
  6. Food coloring (optional)
How to Make This

Mix the ingredients together using a medium-sized bowl, keeping the peanuts for last. Once you have it all nicely blended until smooth, cream the top of each cookie with the glaze and then sprinkle atop each one a generous crushed heap of peanuts. Using the back of a teaspoon, gently apply pressure to the top of the cookie to allow the peanuts to slightly sink into the glaze. This nutty, sugary delight will have anyone craving for seconds.
These recipes can be changed and altered in any way that you see fit, using flavors and varied textures while making them. Make it fun and use cookie cutters of all shapes and sizes, giving you more area to work with while decorating. If you'd like the glaze to further harden, place the cookies in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and then serve.
