Recipe: Sugar Icing Glaze for Buns

This two ingredient Icing Glaze is so simple I contemplated not even posting it.. but … then again.. I have it in my file … and I refer to it all the time for things I want to make a simple sugar icing glaze for.. so I decided to post it for all of you.


There are a lot of variations to this.. the biggest one is adding vanilla to it… if you want a vanilla flavor… simply add ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract.

This recipe lists the half and half amount as 1- 1 ½ tablespoons. Use 1 tablespoon if you like it thicker.. 1 ½ tablespoons for a runnier consistency (like the picture above).

Keep in mind if you drizzle this on warm buns, it will run more. The glaze in the picture was drizzled on when they were warm.

I use Fat Free Half and Half.. it has a long shelf life in the fridge… is great to use in sauces… and great to use in coffee as creamer. I almost always have some in the fridge.

You can substitute milk for the half and half.. but you will need to tinker with the amount to add since it will make the glaze runnier.

This will make enough to drizzle on about 18 buns.
