Sugar Cookie Icing

Have you tried a yummy icing like this for your sugar cookies?
It's different from a traditional buttercream because it hardens and makes stacking cookies a cinch! 

Sugar Cookie Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tsp. milk
1 Tb. light corn syrup
¼ tsp. vanilla, almond, peppermint, or other flavoring extract
Food coloring

Mix all ingredients until smooth. Brush or drizzle on cookies. This makes enough icing to cover 2-3 cookie sheets full of cookies. If the icing gets too thick, you can thin it with more milk or corn syrup. The icing hardens completely in 1-2 hours, though after about half an hour it is hard enough to drizzle a second coat over the first one. You will need to thin it even more than the recipe if you just want to drizzle it over something.
