Powdered sugar icing

1-Minute Powdered Sugar Icing

  • Author: Sonja Overhiser
  • Prep Time: 1 minute
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 minute
  • Yield: 1/4 cup icing 1x


This powdered sugar icing is the fastest glaze ever! Simply mix powdered sugar and milk, then drizzle on cookies and cakes. (Vegan variation included.)


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk OR 1/2 to 1 tablespoon almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk for vegan


  1. Stir together the confectioners’ sugar and milk until a smooth sauce forms and all lumps are dissolved. (If you’re using dairy free milk, start with 1/2 tablespoon and use just enough until it comes to a drizzleable consistency: most non-dairy milks aren’t as thick as standard milk.)
  2. To drizzle on cookies or cakes, make sure they are at room temperature or the glaze will melt. Dip a fork into the glaze and drizzle in a zigzag pattern. Let sit at room temperature until the glaze is dry, about 15 minutes.
