  • 24 tablespoons water or plant-based milk (we used oat milk here)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together confectioners sugar with 2 tablespoon water or plant-based milk.
  2. Stir with a fork until smooth and no clumps remain. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons more water or milk at a time to the glaze if it is too thick.
  3. Dip, drizzle or ice over your Sweet Loren’s cookie creations!
