Cream Cheese Cookie Glaze

Ingredients:                                            Makes icing for 2 dozen cookies
2 ounces cream cheese (softened)

2 tablespoons corn syrup

2 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. almond extract

4-5 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup milk

Cream the cheese, corn syrup, and vanilla together until smooth.

Slowly add sugar and milk alternating until you achieve an "Elmer's glue" consistency.  You may need more or less milk depending on desired consistency. If glaze becomes too runny, add more powdered sugar.

Add gel color.

*It is easier to thin than thicken.

*Let cookies set for 12-24 hours to dry completely.
