perfect cream cheese frosting from our best bites

Perfect Cream Cheese Frosting


This cream cheese frosting is perfect if you want a frosting that tastes like cream cheese and isn’t too sweet. Fluffy, creamy, and perfectly tangy, this frosting is amazing on cakes, muffins, and anything pumpkin!


2 8-ounce packages cream cheese (light works fine, although it will yield a slightly softer frosting) at almost room temperature
1/2 cup salted butter at almost room temperature
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract (or both)


Whip together the cream cheese, butter, and extract until light and fluffy. Add in the powdered sugar and whip until smooth and fully incorporated.  Refrigerate any leftovers (or anything you’ve frosted that doesn’t get eaten immediately).
