Royal Icing Recipe


This Royal Icing recipe is made with powdered egg whites. A great icing for decorated Christmas cookies or gingerbread houses.


  • 2 tablespoons Just Whites, an egg white powder
  • 6 tablespoons lukewarm water
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract or lemon juice
  • 1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar


In a large mixing bowl with a hand-held electric mixer on low, beat egg white powder and confectioners' sugar until well blended. Gradually beat in water and flavoring; continue beating on high until icing is very thick and glossy, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Keep icing covered at all times while not being used. Add food coloring if desired, then spread with a knife over cooled cookies or use a pastry bag to pipe the icing around edges of cookies and make designs.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups of Royal Icing.
