I use a cookie icing similar to this for my cookies. It dries overnight and great for packaging or stacking cookies but it will depend on how humid or dry conditions are. It's versatile you can add more powder sugar if you need it thicker or more milk or water to thin it.
This recipe is from karenscookies.net Its great for for gingerbread houses and my Edible Christmas Tree Ornaments and Frames
