Simple Icing

Use this icing to decorate our Chocolate Shortbread.

Source: Everyday Food, October 2005


  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 drop yellow or orange food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon water


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners' sugar, food coloring, and water. (Icing should be spreadable but not too thick; add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, as necessary.) Spread onto tips of shortbread. Let set, 15 minutes.
