This recipe that is printed

This recipe that is printed in the current Farmer's Almanac on page 259, says to set aside powdered sugar for glaze and does not provide the recipe instructions for the glaze. Is it powdered sugar + milk glaze? Thank you for your help!

Hi, Georgie-

In step 2 you are supposed to beat egg whites with salt and sugar. Set aside ½ cup of this mixture, this is the glaze.
