2 ½ Tbsp warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract or orange juice (or lemon or lime juice)
food coloring if desired
1. Combine sugar with water to achieve the desired consistency in a small bowl. Add vanilla extract or orange juice (or lemon or lime juice).
2. To tint the glaze: Place small quantities in several small bowls. Add a little food coloring to each bowl and mix well. (Paste food colors give the most vivid results.) Allow glazed cookies to dry completely before packaging or storing.
