This cream cheese glaze recipe is thick and perfect for drizzling! It works for muffins, breads, cakes, and more.


  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon milk


  1. Place the cream cheese in a glass measuring cup or bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds until warm. (Alternatively, warm it in a small saucepan over medium low heat on the stovetop).
  2. Stir in the powdered sugar and milk and mix until a drizzlable glaze forms.
  3. Use a fork to drizzle it over muffins or quick breads. (If making the baked goods in advance, store them un-iced and refrigerated or frozen; add the drizzle directly before serving.)


*The quantity listed works as a modest glaze for 12 muffins or 1 quick bread loaf. For a larger quantity of glaze, use 1/4 cup cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon milk.
