PREP TIME: 20 min  COOK TIME: 0 min  TOTAL TIME: 20 min  YIELD: Varies
  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners (icing) sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 egg white
  1. Combine sugar, cream of tartar, and egg white in bowl.  Mix at high speed until mixture is so stiff that a knife drawn through leaves a clean path.  (add small amounts of additional sugar if required to achieve this).
  2. To decorate cookies, spoon mixture into a cake decorator.  If you don’t have a cake decorator, use a plastic freezer bag instead by spooning mixture into bag and cutting a small piece from the corner of the bag to pipe icing and decorate as desired.
