This Easy Mint Frosting for Sugar Cookies is a tradition in my family! It only has four ingredients and is so easy to make!
When I married my husband, I married into a really wonderful family. Besides being great people, they truly know how to do the holidays right. Some of my best memories from my teenage and college years are the holidays with his family, experiencing all of their traditions. One of those traditions is making cut out sugar cookies and frosting them with this easy mint frosting! At first, I wasn’t so sure what to think, but since it’s my husband’s favorite frosting, I grew to love it over time!
Making this Easy Mint Frosting couldn’t be easier. There’s only three ingredients! I use DairyPure Half and Half as my main ingredient, along with powdered sugar and mint extract. Cream and milk are staples all year long, but they become even more important over the holidays! I choose DairyPure because their creams and milk contain no artificial growth hormones, are tested for antibiotics before they’re sold, and come from cows that are fed a healthy diet. Using high quality ingredients is extra important, especially for holiday recipes that your family looks forward to!
Most traditional icings and glazes call for milk or water, but I think that you get a better result by using half and half or cream, since they have a higher fat content. The flavor is really enhanced!

- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 to 4 tablespoons DairyPure Half and Half
- 2 teaspoons mint or peppermint extract
- 1-2 drops of green food coloring
- Combine powdered sugar and half and half in bowl, adding ONE tablespoon of half and half at a time and whisking slowly to combine. The frosting should be thick but still have some movement to it.
- Add extract and food coloring, whisk to combine.
- Frost cookies and allow to set for 10-15 minutes before eating. The frosting will harden and should take on a slight shine.
- This is a very forgiving recipe. If too thick, add more half and half. Too thin, more powdered sugar.
