This icing is perfect for just drizzling over scones, sweet biscuits, even cinnamon rolls if you don't like a lot of icing. Incredibly easy, it takes only 3 ingredients, about 3 minutes to make and involves no cooking!

For the half cup of confectioners sugar, you definitely need to add at least 3-1/2 tblspn of heavy cream/half n hlaf in order to get it to the right consistency.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the powdered sugar and half and half or cream and stir until the sugar is completely absorbed by the cream. It should look just like the packaged icing that comes in store-bought ready-made cinnamon rolls.
  2. Add the teaspoon of vanilla extract. You can also add a few drops of almond extract, but be careful--this extract is very strong! Recipes often recommend a few drops per CAN of cheesecake fruit topping, etc. This is only half a cup of icing, so don't add too much!
  3. The icing is ready to drizzle over scones, sweet biscuits, etc. I drizzle on the icing with a small spoon in a zig-zag pattern.
