Wonderful and very easy. Leaves a very pretty finish. It's thick enough to remind me of almost a frosting but it's not. Will be my only glaze recipe I use.
This recipe appeared in our newspaper in April 2003 I gave it a try and it's wonderful. It's the only glaze that I will use. The glaze is beautiful and dries hard enough to be able to package the cookies in cellophane.
