Icing Without Icing Sugar?
Posted by on
Yes, it is possible to make icing without powdered sugar (also known as icing sugar or confectioners' sugar). Here are a few options for making icing without powdered sugar:
Whipped cream icing: Whisk heavy cream with a bit of vanilla extract until soft peaks form, then use to decorate your cookies.
Glaze: Mix together melted chocolate, a bit of melted butter, and a small amount of corn syrup. Stir until smooth, then let the glaze cool and thicken slightly before using to decorate your cookies.
Cream cheese icing: Beat cream cheese with a bit of vanilla extract and a small amount of honey or maple syrup until smooth. Use to decorate your cookies.
Buttercream: Beat butter with a small amount of honey or maple syrup and a bit of vanilla extract until smooth. Use to decorate your cookies.
These icings will have a different texture and flavor compared to traditional powdered sugar icing, but they can still be used to decorate cookies and add a delicious touch to your baked goods.
