A Simple Icing Recipe

Store bought cinnamon rolls come with their own icing. But just in case that’s not enough, here’s and easy recipe to make a simple icing. It works great as a glaze for cinnamon rolls and other baked goods.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together 2 cups of powdered sugar and 1/3 cup of milk.
  • Whisk until thin and of drizzling consistency. If it gets too thick, add a little more milk. If it’s too thin, whisk in a little more powdered sugar.
