Powdered-sugar Icing - Lukier

Author/Submitted by: POLISH COOKING, Marianna Olszewska Heberle
Servings: 1
Categories: Cakes / Desserts / Frostings

2  egg  whites
  cup  powdered sugar, sifted
1/2  teaspoon  lemon juice

The thin, satin-smooth crust of this icing is a nice complement to cookies, mazurkas and cakes. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating constantly. Beat 10 minutes or until glossy. Add lemon juice; beat 2 minutes or until icing stands up in soft peaks. Makes about 1-1/4 cups icing. Variation: Add food coloring or flavorings, such as 1 teaspoon sifted unsweetened cocoa powder or vanilla extract. Use a little more sugar if liquids are added.
