Which paint works best for cookies?

Question by Michelle M: Which paint works best for cookies?
I am making my kids cookie bouquets for valentines day and would like to know which cookie paint works best. One made from egg yolk, one made from egg white, or one made from corn syrup.

Best answer:

Answer by ~You made me say it~
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. water
Food coloring

Blend egg yolks and water together. Divide into containers and add food coloring. Using small clean paintbrushes, paint unbaked cookies. Bakes on a shiny glaze.

    Unless you aren’t worried about your kids eating raw eggs, I would go with:

    1 cup confectioners sugar
    2 tsp milk
    2 tsp light corn syrup
    food coloring

    Place sugar, food coloring and milk in bowl. Stir until mixed thoroughly. Add corn syrup and mix well. For filling in areas, use thinned icing (add small amounts or light corn syrup until desired consistency is reached).
