Alton Brown's Royal Icing Recipe: "Fantastic icing! This is my new go-to icing for decorating cookies. I love that it hardens to a clean smooth finish. I can stack cookies easily in a container and not have to worry that the icing is sticking. This is the perfect icing!"
No spread Sugar Cookie Recipe..."Over mixing the butter and sugar will cause too much air to be incorporated into the dough. If you’d like a light and fluffy cookie, that’s ideal, however the dough will spread more during baking; not ideal if you’d like the cookie to hold its shape."
