Infused Vanilla Icing

Feb 15, 2021#CookingwithKindness

This infused vanilla icing is perfect for cinnamon rolls, scones, muffins, cakes, and more! Use quality vanilla for outstanding flavor and heavy cream for a thicker consistency.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • 2 ½ tablespoons heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • your favorite Kind Tree distillate oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Whisk the confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons milk or heavy cream, vanilla extract, and distillate together. Add more heavy cream to thin out if necessary. For thicker icing, add a little more confectioners’ sugar.
  2. Taste, then add a pinch of salt if desired.
  3. If not using right away, cover and store icing in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

NOTES

  • This amount of icing is perfect for 1 batch of cinnamon rolls, scones, muffins, 1 cake etc. For a larger batch, recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
  • Heavy cream yields a thicker, creamier icing. Milk yields a thinner icing. Half-and-half can also be used.
  • Flavor: Feel free to add more vanilla extract or even the seeds scraped from 1/4 of a vanilla bean. For lemon or orange icing, replace the milk with fresh lemon or orange juice.
