Alton, I'm surprised you forgot to include a pinch of salt. That tiny pinch makes a big difference. In the spirit of Cut-Throat Kitchen, you have lost one star. ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made some cinnamon raisin scones and wanted a quick setting glaze so I made this and it was very tasty and exactly the kind of glaze I wanted. I added cinnamon and allspice to the glaze and it was wonderful item not reviewed by moderator and published
This glaze worked great on my butter cookies. It was very easy to make, hardened fairly quickly, and kept the cookie moist and yummy. Dipping the 60 cookies in the glaze saved me tons of time (from individually frosting them). Thanks Alton! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty recipe for a doughnut glaze and quick to whip up. Didn't bother setting it over a warm bowl. The stove with the burner turned off worked fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Essential. This sweet vanilla glaze was a perfect way to preserve the freshness of my sour cream doughnuts. This glaze set up perfectly within minutes. It will always be a keepsake recipe for preserving the freshness and flavors of my favorite spiced doughnuts, fruit pies, and turnovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have been lookinng for a long time for a good doughnut glaze. This is a keeper but with a few changes like halfing the vanilla and using a touch of whipped cream. I added 2 tablespoons of cocoa to make it chocolate which turned out very nice. The glaze was yummy and just what i needed. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is an A+! Very easy and wonderful flavor and texture just like the donut shop. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recently I was looking for a quick and easy glaze recipe for my donut holes. This was just what I was looking for. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and even the kids can do it. It is a little sugary, but the vanilla balences it out just great. I tend to double the batch and doesn't ruin the balance (I've had recipes that call not to double because it screws the reipe up!. Overall, great quick and easy recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It has way to much sugar in the recipe now it tastes like I just put sugar all over it instead of glaze! But I did make a change to the recipe, I cut the vanilla in half because it would've been super strong. item not reviewed by moderator and published
