  • 2 tbsp. of milk or water
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Step 4:

Bake as directed. (*Note: either grease the pan or bake on foil because the cinnamon filling does ooze out and caramelize onto the pan!):

Step 5:

While they’re baking mix glaze using milk (or water), powdered sugar, and vanilla. Drizzle glaze on top of cinnamon rolls after they come out of the oven.
