Don’t miss out on the cookie decorating fun this year. We have Gluten Free decoration suggestions right here, along with the perfect icing recipe.


For the decoration:
Chocolate Honeygrams
Chocolate Thins
For the glaze / icing:
3 cups powdered sugar*
1 package gelatin powder
1/2 cup hot water
1/4 cup cold water
Optional, safe decor*:
Jimmie sprinkles
sanding sugar sprinkles
non-pareil sprinkles
food coloring


  • To make the icing, put the gelatin packet in a small bowl with the hot water. Stir until dissolved. Add cold water and stir.
  • Measure powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add 3 tbsp of the water/gelatin mixture and beat on low. Add more of the water/gelatin mixture till you have a very stiff icing. After you stop beating, peaks should maintain their rough stiffness for at least 5 seconds.
  • Separate the icing into different bowls and add color as you wish, until your desired color is reached.
  • Spread icing on the cookies with an offset spatula, or put it in a piping bag with various tips to draw.
  • Decorate your cookies to your heart’s content!
