Translucent Sugar Glaze
Once dry, this simple, no-cook glaze forms a thin film over a cake or cookie crust. It may also be used as a decoration.
You can vary the flavor and instead of water, add lemon, lime, tangerine or orange juice or even rum or coffee to the powdered sugar.

Make Ahead RecipeYes
Taste and Texturecreamy, sweet
- ½ cup (50 grams) unsifted powdered sugar
- 4 teaspoons water
Pour the sugar into a triple sifter and sift into a 1-quart mixing bowl. Add the water and stir with a rubber spatula until blended and smooth. The consistency should be thin enough so that a transparent film will cover the baked good. Adjust the consistency by adding water if it is too thick or sugar if it is too thin. Use immediately.
