• 4 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 tablespoons dried egg white powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • ½ cup water
  • Food coloring optional
  • Water for thinning if needed
  1. Sift sugar, cream of tartar and egg white powder into the bowl of your electric mixer.
  2. Add flavoring and water, beating at low speed until well mixed.
  3. Increase the speed to high and beat until icing has thickened and holds peaks, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. The frosting may be thinned with water and tinted with food coloring to make a “paint” for cookies.
Recipe Notes

Use the frosting also as glue for decorations. It may also be piped through a pastry bag with a fine tip.
