Glazed Sugar Cookies: Drizzling Option




  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tbsp canned unsweetened coconut milk (or other diary-free) milk beverage
  • Gluten-free natural food coloring (I used India Tree)

Shown below is a light and delicious glaze created for my Glazed Sugar Cookies, developed for Allergic Living. The simple glaze can also add a punch of sweet flavor and color to many of your other favorite baked goodies, too, from bars to cookies to sweet loaves.

Below, I show you how to drizzle, rather than ice cookies, using the glaze. To view this in real-time, don’t miss Drizzle, The Movie, at the bottom of this post.

Drizzle, The Movie


  1. Combine the confectioners’ sugar and coconut milk in a small bowl and stir or whisk until smooth.
  2. Add food coloring of your choice.
  3. For drizzling over cooled cookies on a cooling rack, fill a tablespoon with enough glaze that it drips freely. Then, in a continuous motion, drizzle from one side of the cookie to the other, creating nice lines of glaze.
  4. If you prefer the option of a smooth glaze rather than drizzle, simply coat the cooled cookies with spoonfuls of glaze. Allow the excess to drip over the edges.
