Melt remaining butter; brush over rolls. Serve warm. Yield: 6 rolls. (you can double the recipe for as many as you want to make)
To Make Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
1 -3 tablespoon half-and-half cream or 1 tablespoon cream, approximate 1 dash salt, optional
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon lemon extract or 1 teaspoon orange extract
Mix together sugar and enough cream to achieve a spreading consistency. Add extract flavor of your choice and salt (if desired- I omit). Spread over warm still warm cinnamon rolls. This also makes a nice icing for quick breads like banana bread or zucchini bread.
