Does anyone know a good recipe for gingerbread icing? I would like to make some gingerbread cookies with my children for Halloween. I always remember as a child, when we went to visit an uncle, we would stop at this bakery and pick up a gingerbread cookie with icing on it. I would love to make these home made but don't know the recipe for the icing. Any ideas anyone?

Hmm...yes, I have to agree with ACSAPA on this one, they traditionally have royal icing and if you got them from a bakery I'd imagine that would be the most likely flavor you're looking for. There are plenty of good recipes to be found for it, too :).

Oh, wonderful! That recipe ACSAPA linked has an alternative to raw egg whites. Whew!

I know of another icing recipe that substitutes egg whites with lemon juice, but I don't know if that'd be sturdy enough as royal, so meringue (or cornstarch? Gelatine?) should be good too.
