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.
