When spreading canned or home made frosting on sugar cookies, how do you make the frosting stick? Mine seems to always follow the knife, off.

  • Are you letting the cookies cool completely? I don't usually have that problem, unless I try to frost them to quick from the oven.

  • Make sure the cookies are completely cool before icing them.

  • Use a spatula or a cake tip.

  • I usually buy the tubes of cookie decorating frosting so it dries and they don't stick together. Or make my own royal icing to frost. It spreads easy then dries 'hard'

  • I use the back of a small teaspoon. It comes off much better than a knife.

  • I thin the frosting a little, that seems to help, cool cookies are definently a must, you could also pop the frosting into the microwave for 10 seconds just to warm it up a little

  • I agree you need to let them cool, and just frost slowly and gently.
