cream cheese frosting recipe

This is the perfect frosting for Fall and Holiday treats. It’s an easy cream cheese frosting with a few extra flavors to make it a little special. It’s great on carrot cake, anything pumpkin (breads, cakes, bars…etc ), sugar cookies….the possibilities are endless! It’s ok to lick the spoon when you make this frosting!

I don’t know if you’re aware, but this is pinning upside down. I’ve never seen that before.

Thanks for the heads up! I got it worked out! You can re-pin it if it being upside bugs you as much as it did me!!
