I used this recipe as the final touch on the Golden Raisin Drop Buns – and it was delicious!

White Vanilla Glaze Icing

I wasn’t sure how I’d like it, as I hadn’t yet made a glaze using flour and granulated sugar. I’m pleased that it turned out so yummy~

I did up the amount of vanilla and to be upfront — I changed the name, almost entirely.

White Vanilla Glaze Icing

It is listed in the vintage cookbook as a frosting. But I knew immediately that the name would never do. It was much to thin.

So I decided it was icing.

But, it was even too thin for that.

It is very much a glaze. So here we are. The perfect glaze to top the drop buns!

I hope you try it and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Notes

This recipe does say to "beat until fluffy" after the butter and shortening are added.  The fluffy stage never happened for me.  But if it does for you - then maybe it could be used as a frosting.
If it doesn't, it still makes an excellent glaze.
