Sugar Cookie Icing {Dairy-free, Egg-free}

December 15, 2011 at 1:28 pm 3 comments

I can’t tell you how long I’ve looked for a perfect allergy-free sugar cookie icing. A lot of them have dairy in them and then I found one without dairy and realized I had no corn syrup. So after some research on substitutions, I came up with this icing. I will use it from now on! It’s the perfect consistency and tastes yummy, too!

Sugar Cookie Icing {Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan}

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 Tbsp water

1 Tbsp Smart Balance Light (or Earth Balance buttery spread – they are dairy free)

1 Tbsp Cream of Tartar (I may have used a heaping Tbsp just in case)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Food coloring, if desired

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mix until powdered sugar is moistened. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Add additional tablespoons of water to reach desired consistency. Tint with food coloring if desired.

    I made this icing a couple days ago and I think there is a mistake
    on the amount of cream of tartar. I think maybe it should have been 1 t. instead of 1 Tablespoon. the taste of the cream of tartar was very prominent.

    What perfect timing! I have been looking for a dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free recipe for our family. I just gave my sons the cutest cookie cutters for Chanukah and now we can decorate up a storm!

    I also write an allergy-free blog (Allergy Shmallergy: and would love to stay in touch!

    Thanks again!

      One reader tried it and thought the taste of cream of tartar was strong. I didn’t notice it, but you might want to try less first just in case.
