Perfect Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Author: kate jones

Description

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!


Ingredients

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)


Instructions

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).
