Babyshower Cookies

My sister-in-law’s baby shower is coming up and she’s having a girl. My daughter, Gabrielle, is thrilled (even though she’s not aware of it yet at 9 months), but my son, Adam, is moderately excited. He was hoping it would be a boy.

Meringue Icing

2 tbsp meringue powder
1/3 cup warm water
225 g icing sugar
1 tsp light corn syrup
1 tsp of flavoring (vanilla extract, almond extract, lemon juice…)
A few drops of food coloring (FYI: you’ll need white gel color for white icing)

 

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix water and meringue powder together until foamy.

2. Add the sugar, salt, extract, and corn syrup, and beat until for 1-2 minutes or until stiff peaks form.

3. Don’t overheat the icing for it could become flaky and dull when piped onto your cookie.

4. If you’re going to do different colors, divide your frosting between different bowls, then color.
