Egg Wash Glaze

Egg Wash Glaze

This transparent glaze with a lovely subtle sheen works well with molded cookies.  Add color to the glazed cookies by filling in details with food color thinned with water.

  • 1 egg white, (it is best to use powdered egg whites because of salmonella.)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • brushes
  • food color
  • whisk

Whisk the egg white until it is frothy. Add the powdered sugar. Paint the cookie with this thin glaze. When the glaze is dry (about one hour), thin down food colors and paint the details.
