  • Saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Mixing bowl


  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of soft butter
  • 1-2 tbsp of vanilla extract


  • Place a saucepan on your stove at a medium heat. Put milk and flour into the saucepan and stir until the mixture becomes a paste-like consistency.
  • Add vanilla extract and stir into the mixture.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to fully cool before moving onto the next step.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Once the flour-milk-vanilla mixture has reached room temperature, add the sugar-butter mixture into the saucepan. It is best to use an electric whisk to fully combine both of these mixtures together.
  • Spread your icing onto cinnamon rolls and dig in!
