A classic sugar cookie recipe is simply a sweet, vanilla tasting cookie. So how can you change up the classic sugar cookie recipe? With the sugar cookie icing of course!

The sugar cookie icing can change the flavor of the cookie. For example, add some strawberry extract to the cookie glaze and you will now have strawberry glazed sugar cookies.

Changing up the flavor of glazed sugar cookies is what I heated to do. I could just do a caramel glaze, but Kahlua had a salted caramel flavor that sounded perfect for sugar cookie icing!

Kahlua, which is an coffee flavor liquor, has been adding flavors to this popular liquor. One the flavors is salted caramel Kahlua. This flavor sounds like it would be heaven on a classic sugar cookie recipe.

Making this salted caramel Kahlua into a sugar cookie glaze was simpler than sounds. Instead of using milk or water with powder sugar, I used the Kahlua instead.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Using the liquor to make the sugar cookie icing, does it make the cookies alcoholic? Well yes, but if you like to not have the alcohol taste in the sugar cookie icing, simply add the salted caramel Kahlua to a saucepot, add a little water and bring to a simmer for 2-3 minutes. This will burn the alcohol off.

Then remove the Kahlua mixture from the heat, allow to cool a little, and then add to powdered sugar. You still get the salted caramel Kahlua taste but without the worry of the alcohol in the sugar cookie glaze!
