This recipe has to be registered here on the blog. I’ve been seeing Christmas cookies for weeks, planning the menus, thinking about what to do different this year.
My kiddos are always fascinated by cookies decorated with icing. And I started to think about how to surprise them. You know that the best surprises are the most simple ones.
I warning you that it contains sugar … icing is a sweet thing. It is not something for everyday but it is definitely something for Christmas!
I went online to see some icing recipes. The biggest and only problem here was the egg white.
But it was easy to solve:
To replace egg white: to replace egg white, I always use aquafaba. If it works for cakes, macaroons and mayonnaise it should also work for icing (and it works!). Any aquafaba, be it chickpea, lentils or peas.
Powdered sugar: they can be homemade in a food processor or bought.
Lemon: helps with any flavor that aquafaba may have and that may not be liked by some people.
Vanilla Extract: to add flavor, simply.
Dyes: to make drawings (just be better than me).
This icing is as hard as the other egg icing . I had to store it in a box before I finished the cookies and just stirred it before using it again.
