Time to make the glaze:
The glaze can be the most difficult part of the Pink Marble Glazed Sugar Cookies. I have made it pretty easy for you, and honestly, if I can do it, you can too! If at any point the glaze is too thin, then add some powdered sugar, and if it is too thick, then add some milk to loosen it up. I highly suggest testing this on some of your less beautiful cookies. You want it to stay, but you don’t want it to be too thick. It is important to use gel food coloring when making the icing so that your colors are vibrant! You can also switch out the almond extract for whatever you prefer.
Here’s what you’ll need:
How to make the perfect glaze for your Pink Marble Glazed Sugar Cookies!
- Combine powdered sugar, light corn syrup, and milk until you have a smooth consistency.
- You can add more powdered sugar or milk depending on the consistency, but you definitely want it to be spot on, and I highly suggest doing some test cookies.
- Separate your glaze into four bowls, and make sure you have enough room to get the cookies in the bowl flat
- Take a toothpick, and add food coloring until you reach the marbled effect that you want
- Dip your cookies in perfectly flat, and the pull them up. You should be able to imprint that marble icing straight onto your cookie.
- Start on a new bowl once the colors begin to muddle together
- Add your glitter or sprinkles, and enjoy!
