    You’ve seen this Cream Cheese Glaze smothering a lot of my favorite baked goods over the years including Carrot Cake Bread, Cinnamon Rolls and more, but it’s so delicious you could eat it with a spoon, so I decided it deserves it’s own post to live in all it’s glory. 

    You’ll also see me smothering it over a few new recipes this fall {look out for Pumpkin Pound Cake, coming soon}! It’s the perfect addition to any pound cake, coffee cake, bundt cake, donut or muffin.

    This easy Cream Cheese Glaze recipe uses 4 simple ingredients – cream cheese {of course}, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar, also known as confectioner’s sugar.

    This sweet and creamy glaze has just a little tang to balance the flavor. It’s so good that the girls don’t even realize there’s cream cheese in it!
