One popular frosting for sugar cookies is simple glaze of confectioners' sugar and either milk or fruit juice. By adjusting the ratio of liquid to sugar, you can make this glaze as thick or as thin as you'd like.

Royal icing is another option: it dries to a hard, crunchy finish and also holds up well in the mail.

Buttercream frosting is soft and thick; tasty, but not good if you plan to stack the cookies.

Instead of frosting, you can also dip half or all of a cookie in chocolate and then in chopped nuts or crushed candy canes.
