Easy cookie icing only has 2 ingredients and takes minutes to make. This homemade icing can be used to decorate any cookie recipe, and is perfect for beginners or baking with kids!


  • 300g powdered sugar, sifted
  • 45g whole milk, cold from the fridge is fine.


  1. Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. 
  2. Add the milk. Whisk well using a fork or a whisk until the cookie icing is a smooth consistency. 
  3. Add more milk or more powdered sugar until you get the desired consistency. 
  4. Use immediately - this is a crusting icing so you need to make sure that it is not exposed to air for too long so that it does not go crusty. I like to transfer mine to a piping bag to use straight away.
  5. Once the cookies are decorated, place onto a wire rack and leave to dry at room temperature for at least a few hours, until the icing is set.
