How to Make It

Step 1

Combine powdered sugar, meringue powder, corn syrup, lemon juice, and 4 tablespoons water in a large bowl; stir until completely smooth, adding water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until mixture is pourable but not runny.

Step 2

If desired, divide icing among separate bowls, and tint with food coloring. Dip tops of cookies in icing, scraping excess off on side of bowl. Place dipped cookies on a wire rack, and let stand until dry and firm, about 1 hour. Alternately, place cookies on a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet and slowly pour icing over cookies, letting excess drip over the sides. Let stand until dry and firm, about 1 hour.
