We had a sudden desire for cinnamon rolls yesterday and these 90 minute wonders came up. I have to say that the allrecipes site has been very good for me lately. They have a Youtube channel with the best recipe instructions – good photography and concise descriptions without silly banter. They feature the recipe and not some self aggrandizing twit being cute. The video link is on the page I linked to above and is well worth the few minutes it takes to watch. I heard the nice lady mention cream cheese icing towards the end of the video so I did a quick search and found a recipe:
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
We had some maple syrup on hand so I substituted a few ounces of that for the vanilla extract and used a hand mixer to beat it until it was smooth.
