And you should know we dolloped ours with whipped cream cheese.  And if I had had heavy whipping cream on hand, I would have made this to pour on top.  I’ll go ahead and add the recipe below for you…

Whipped Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4-5 tablespoons heavy cream, or more depending on texture

In a bowl, whisk cream cheese vigorously until it smoothes out. Add in sugar, vanilla and cream one tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly. This glaze will be a bit thicker (almost like a thin frosting), so add more or less cream depending on your desired consistency.
