Egg Yolk Tempra

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This makes a shiny gloss finish on most any cookie. Works best on light color cookies, like sugar cookie cutouts. Depending on the color you are going for, you will probably need between 2 and 8 drops of food coloring.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Mix egg yolk and water. Divide into dishes for as many colors as you want to make. Add food coloring to get shade desired (e.g., 2 Red plus 2 Yellow for Orange; 3 Blue for Blue).
  • Paint on unbaked cookies and bake as you normally would. Cookies will come out with shiny color finish.
