I know I'm a few days late, but on the actual day I did make some delicious sugar cookies. I used my same, original recipe that I always have, but I tried a little thing new with the frosting. I had seem some frosted sugar cookies that had nice shiny frosting and I wanted my frosting to shine. So I did some research and I found something called glycerin. I found it at Michael's, it's a Wilton product. (I'm sure others make it too.) The description says that it is for restoring consistency and color to frosting, and I guess in the meantime, it makes your frosting shine. It was cheap too, about $1.99 for 2 ounces.
I made my frosting as usual, and then I stirred in a few drops, maybe a 1/4 tsp of glycerin. As the frosting dried it still had that nice, freshly frosted shine.
Sugar Cookie Frosting:
1 pound box powdered sugar
6 TBS butter
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix together with mixer. Add milk by tsp if not runny enough.
