Ok ok, so I knowww that title might be a little cheesy, but I just couldn't help myself :) This post is dedicated to a copy cat frosting recipe I created through much experimentation and relentless taste tests.
Have you ever had something so delicious that you would kill for the recipe? Well that is what I felt the first time I ever had that sweet signature Cinnabon frosting. This stuff is seriously sweet enough to make every single one of your teeth ache if you eat too much, but too good to say no to at the same time.
Getting down to the oh so sweet point! The recipe that I finally settled on for this look-a-like frosting is so simple, you could make it in your sleep. Start with 1 block of cream cheese, any brand you would like, and 1 stick of butter. Make sure your butter is unsalted. Leave the butter and cream cheese on the counter for AT LEAST five to six hours, but preferably overnight to make absolute certain they are at room temperature.
When ingredients are at room temperature, put them into a medium mixing bowl and combine until smooth. This should be really easy if you let them sit long enough. When butter and cream cheese are mixed smooth, pour in one tbsp vanilla and 1/2 a cup of powder sugar. Mix well and you are ready to spread on cinnamon rolls, use as a fruit dip or eat right out of the bowl with your finger, my personal favorite ;)
AND THAT'S IT!! It truly is that simple but trust me...Wellllll worth the effort.
If any of you do try this recipe, I would love to know what you used it for and how you liked it?? I am always interested in my followers and their feedback.
As always... Happy Baking beautiful people!
Peace and love
