I made the recipe exactly as stated. It came out perfect. For me, it covered 12 rolls, not 24. I did use buttermilk in the icing only because I had a touch left that I had to use. This was just what I needed--thanks Cara! NOTE: This recipe does not say to sift the powdered/confectioners sugar. I really didn't mess with that but I did run a wisk through it to break down the bigger lumps in the sugar. It just makes for a smoother icing. For those like me who forget to let the cream cheese sit out before using, I let the cream cheese sit in a small bowl on my heating pad (the same one I used to help my rolls rise) on low/medium for 20 minutes or so to soften it up.
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!
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.!
This one's a plate licker!!! It is absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe except that I left out the milk and salt. It made the icing a little thicker which we like. That allowed the icing to melt into the cinnamon rolls. I will never fix cinnamon rolls again without using this icing! Thanks for sharing the recipe Cara!
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!!!
Super good!I've always used a recipe that used more cream cheese and figured I'd like it better that way. Tonight I didn't have enough cream cheese left for my regular recipe so I tried this one. I am pleasantly surprised and I now have a new regular recipe. Thanks so much!
