In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Colored Icing for Christmas Cookies. I used red and green colors in this icing. I used red, green, and white icing to turn my Christmas Vanilla Butter Cookies into festive treats! I think you will enjoy icing your Christmas cookies with this recipe.

Ingredients (full recipe; I only made half of the recipe in the video):

2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ tablespoons water
food coloring, as desired (for Christmas cookies, red and green are the best colors to use.)

In a medium-sized bowl, combine 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 ½ tablespoons water thoroughly. Add more water, a few drops at a time, until mixture is of spreading consistency. If the mixture is too thin, add more confectioner’s sugar. Divide into 3 parts. Color one part with green food coloring to desired shade of green, one part with red food coloring to desired shade of red, and leave the third part white. Use the icing to frost cookies as desired. Let each individual color of icing set up before applying a different color, and let all iced cookies sit on waxed paper until dry. Then you may stack them on a nice serving plate or nestle them in a cookie tin that is lined with Christmas tissue paper or napkins. The cookies will be quite colorful and enjoyable to ice! –Betty 
