Drizzling powdered sugar icing or chocolate over simple sugar cookies requires no artistic ability and makes them look much prettier than they do plain. Drizzle with total abandon -- or in a little more controlled fashion.
Drizzling powdered sugar icing, which is just powdered sugar and milk mixed to a thick yet fluid consistency, is an easy cookie decorating technique. Using powdered sugar icing; decorate baked cut-out cookies by drizzling icing off the tip of a spoon or tines of a fork. For more control of the drizzle, place icing in a small heavy plastic bag. Snip off the small portion from one of the lower corners and drizzle icing through the opening in the bag.
