Why eat dry cakes and cookies when you can have a deliciously decadent strawberry icing in five minutes?
This glaze recipe is light and fresh while bringing a delightful flavor to top the warm treats coming out of your oven.
To make this glaze, you need a few simple ingredients, a bowl and a whisk.
Easy Strawberry Glaze Ingredients
For this glaze, I’m using strawberry jam. You could also use crushed freeze dried strawberries, but I didn’t have any.
Ingredients you will need:
- Powdered Sugar
- Lemon Juice
- Half & Half
- Strawberry jam or jelly
When working with powdered sugar, I find that it’s easier to combine all wet ingredients first and start adding the sugar in a little at a time.
You can sift it if you want, but be sure to whisk out any lumps if they occur. I skipped the sifting this time and didn’t have an issue with lumps.
This strawberry glaze is the perfect topping for strawberry cake or scones or even pound cake! The lemon juice keeps it light and the strawberry jam is perfectly sweet.
I hope you love it!
