I just got done putting a glaze on my batch of cookies and realized that I had NO clue how to do it properly. I tried drizzling it from the whisk (quickly realized that this was NOT the way to go), tried painting it on with a silicone brush and finally went with a teaspoon and spreading it that way.
How do you put glaze on a cookie???
Here is the recipe in case you are interested.
EGGNOG COOKIES WITH RUM GLAZE
These soft, thin cookies are ideal for the holidays because they can be made in advance and frozen. Plus, because the recipe makes 10 dozen, it’s a good choice for a cookie exchange. Any leftover eggnog can be frozen.
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup purchased eggnog
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups powdered sugar
5 to 6 tablespoons purchased
4 teaspoons dark rum or 1/4
teaspoon rum extract
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1. In large bowl, beat sugar and butter at medium speed until creamy. Beat in 1 cup eggnog, baking soda and nutmeg until blended. Gradually beat in flour until well-blended. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
2. Heat oven to 350°F. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut out with cookie cutters; place cookies on baking sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom. Cool on wire racks.
3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, whisk together all glaze ingredients until smooth. Spread glaze over cooled cookies.
TIP *If desired, a combination of ground cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg can be used.
About 10 dozen (2 1/4-inch) cookies
