This icing is great for decorating sugar cookies or cakes. You can add food coloring to color it or extracts to flavor it.

Royal Icing
INGREDIENTS

4            cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted


1            large egg white, slightly beaten


2            tablespoons whole milk


1            teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions

Put the sugar into the Cuisinart®  mixing bowl. Attach the chef’s whisk and mix on Speed 3 and, with the mixer running, slowly add in the egg white until fully incorporated, about 1 minute.


While the mixer is still running, add the milk and lemon juice and mix until fully incorporated. Scrape the entire bowl as necessary.


Continue mixing until soft peaks form, about  2 minutes. Use immediately or cover the bowl with a damp cloth so the icing does not harden. If using coloring or a flavoring extract for the icing, add it with the milk and lemon juice.
