Marscapone Cheese Frosting

Sunday morning, I popped out of bed to make these cinnamon rolls. I know I've already posted about the Baker Chick's cinnamon rolls but they are so good that they warranted another post.  This time I changed up the frosting just a bit. Instead of cream cheese I used marscapone cheese & it was every bit as delicious, I may even like it better. 

Chris & I each had one for breakfast. Ok & then we shared one - one & a half each.  After our taste-testing I packed them up to bring them to the proud parents, Duclie & Brian, big brother of the newest TWINS in our family! And since food tastes better when it's shared we brought some to Chris's parents house too to share with more family. There were no leftovers which translates to SUCCESS!

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1/2 cup marscapone cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • 2-3 cups of powdered sugar

Make It!
  1. With an electric mixer (or use a whisk if you don't have an electric one), Whip together the softened butter & marscapone cheese until it's smooth & creamy.
  2. Mix in the vanilla & the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Mix throughly combined, creamy & spreadable - mmmm delish.
