Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting

YOU GUYS.

I love cream cheese frosting. This is a simple one that is perfect for carrot or red velvet cake,  those oatmeal sandwich cookies like Little Debbie makes, or even straight outta the bowl, not that I have ANY experience doing that.

Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting

Makes enough frosting for 12 cupcakes, 12 cookie sandwiches, or a small cake

Shopping List

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter 
  • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese frosting
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves  
  • About 3/4 -1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Method 

In a large mixing bowl, with either a hand held mixer or a large stand mixer, whisk the butter and cream cheese until smooth, creamy, and soft.  Whip in the vanilla and spices and then slowly add in the powdered sugar.  Add the whipping cream a little at a time until the mixture has a fluffy and creamy frosting like consistency. Eat with a spoon, as a dip with some cinnamon pita chips, or in/on your favorite baked good!
