Frosting For Cookies

We put the frosting in these awesome squirt bottles I found at a craft store originally for melted chocolate, they work great for kids.
This is just an easy basic frosting recipe, you can do more with it if you want like add cocoa powder, almond extract, or for our gingerbread cookies we added cinnamon. Yum!

3 3/4 cup organic vegan confectioners (powdered) sugar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

-Mix all ingredients until smooth, if it seems too dry add a tsp of liquid at a time.

-You can also use water or milk alt.instead of corn syrup for more detailed work since the corn syrup can make the frosting spread better for a more all over frost.

-I laid out the frosted cookies on wax paper till dry.
