Cream Cheese Frosting

I know what your thinking.  Cream Cheese Frosting?  That shouldn’t be a recipe all by itself.  But you are wrong.  This quick recipe for cream cheese frosting is going to make you smack your momma because she never made it for you.  There are only 4 ingredients (so you can’t say it is to complicated), but there are endless opportunities to use it.  You can frost any cake, put it between two cookies for a perfect sandwich cookie, spread it over brownies and elevate them to fancy, use it as a dip for fresh fruit, lick it off the spoon, the list just goes on and on. Need another reason to make it?  It is gluten free!

The only thing that will make this recipe even easier is if you have a stand mixer so you can just start whipping and not have to hold the hand mixer the whole time. Though if you only have a stand mixer don’t fret, just know your going to be standing there for a few minutes and grab a magazine to flip through while your delicious frosting is mixing up.
