Low Calorie Recipe
This Ornamental Frosting recipe makes up a nice big batch of fluffy, light frosting colored with food coloring if desired. Will stay good in fridge up to one week.
16 ounces powdered sugar
3 tablespoons meringue powder
1/3 cup warm water
1 teaspoon yellow paste icing color
1 teaspoon red paste icing color
1 teaspoon leaf green paste icing color
In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, meringue powder, and water. Mix mixture for five minutes, or until it is so stiff that knife drawn through it leaves a clean-cut path. If desired, add coloring to frosting. With decorating bag, with small tip, decorate cookies with frosting. If mixture is too thick add a little more warm water to desired spreading or piping consistency. Keep frosting covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying out. Decorate cookies as desired.
We offer a low calorie powdered sugar recipe, if you'd care to try that in place of the "regular".
Frosting may be stored in refrigerator in airtight container for up to one week (reheat frosting slightly to make it spreadable).
