I found a recipe at kidswithfoodallergies.org for egg-free icing, it worked quite well. The recipes are copywrighted, so I can't post the recipe...but it used powdered sugar, a milk, and shortening, so it stays white. The greater the amount of milk, the more gluelike and solid it gets, and works well for gingerbread houses.

I don't know if you can get this where you are but Liberty Royal Icing Mix that is egg-free. A friend has bought it before and I think it works fine. (She's avoiding dairy, eggs, peanuts, nuts and sesame seeds and I trust her vigilance and company calling skills.)

It comes in a 425 g bag. It's a powder that you mix with water. Ingredients are icing sugar and soya protein

Here it's sold at the Bulk Barn (I know, I know) it comes in sealed packages so I don't worry about cross contamination.

I wonder if that's the brand Ciel was talking about? (You here Ciel -- was it Bulk Barn you bought the royal icing at last year?)

I don't think it's labelled specifically *peanut free* -- but there was a powdered royal icing available to purchase with the peanut free Gingerbread Houses at Bulk Barn.

Yes Bulk Barn. I think that's the one! Thanks Susan, I've been trying to remember what it was called.

First, I must admit that I am a gingerbread house glue beginner...

I tried the granulated melted sugar method and it worked great for the first two pieces - when I took it off the heat it hardened and when I put it back on to keep it liquefied, it was on too long and burned (yikes - my house now has the smell of burned sugar.) Smiley

Does anyone have a more experienced suggestion so that I may be able to use this method to build the entire house? I feel so silly. When it did work, it worked well.

I just baked 14 small gingerbread houses this week for our Cub Scout Den and used this icing recipe with great results:

1 lb box of confectioners sugar
1/4 cup light Karo syrup
splash of vanilla
3 Tbsp water

This stuff a little gooey to work with (may need to adjust the amount of water added), but was perfect for gluing the houses together. They set up rock solid!
