Cinnamon Bun Icing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

This is just like the sweet, gooey icing that comes inside tiny tins inside those tubes of refrigerated cinnamon bun doughs. By changing the extract flavor, you can make orange cinnamon buns, lemon cinnamon buns, whatever you like.

  1. Mix together sugar and enough cream to achieve a spreading consistency.
  2. Add extract flavor of your choice and salt (if desired- I omit).
  3. To use: Spread over warm biscuits or sweet bread still warm from the oven or drizzle over gingerbread cookies.
  4. This also makes a nice icing for quick breads like banana bread or zucchini bread.
