Cream Cheese Icing for Sweet Rolls

Cream Cheese Icing for Sweet Rolls
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

In a medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients thoroughly. Spread over warm sweet rolls.

Excellent on cinnamon rolls.

My thoughts:
I love the cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing found at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia. So much so that on more than on occasion I have driven the almost 2 hours just to satisfy my craving. This icing is the closest to my beloved rolls that I have been able to develop. It doesn't get hard or dried out and has a nice, tart cream cheese flavor.
