Really good icing for cinnamon buns, made with cream cheese.
This is my recipe - just a note, it will cover 24 tiny rolls or 12 large (like the ones frome the mall). I guess that got left out of the description! Thanks for all who try this - it took a lot of trial and error before I came up with this one. My family loves it and I hope your's will too!
i tried this recipe to go with some cinnamon rolls i was baking to bring to work. i made the icing while the rolls were rising, and i started to eat the icing by dipping raspberries. i love it! it's SO good! you will love it too! try it! it's super easy! light and creamy... mmm!!!
This is classic Cinnabon style frosting. It makes a bit more than you *really* need for 12 buns, so if you, like me, prefer a heavily frosted bun, there's no need to double the recipe. It also chills and freezes well if you like to make things ahead of time.
This is a very good icing. The only change I made was to use only 1 cup sugar and 1/8 tsp salt.
Wonderful cinnamon roll icing! It's easy to make and so good you could eat it all by itself. I used a 3 oz. pkg. of cream cheese and decreased the amount of butter a bit. Since I only had skim milk on hand I opted to my husband's half and half. Definitely make sure your butter and cream cheese are softened. I gradually put everything into my kitchen aid mixer and gave it a whirl. This came out so smooth and creamy -perfect for Sunday morning cinnamon rolls. These frost about 12 large rolls, but then again I LOVE icing! Thanks for a great recipe, Cara M.!
