  • Yield: 1/2 cup glaze 1x


This vanilla glaze is simple and works for donuts, cookies, cakes and more! It takes just 2 minutes to whip up.


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. In a medium bowl, slowly whisk the powdered sugar, cream and vanilla. Gradually add the water to make a smooth, pourable glaze. If the glaze is too sticky, add a teaspoon more water until it comes to a smooth, thick consistency. Use for dipping donuts, or drizzle with a fork across cookies, muffins or cake (makes enough for at least 12 donuts).
