Recipe: Homemade CC Frosting {Thanks! JollyMom}

I am an email subscriber to JollyMom.com, so my inbox contained the most deliciously described, quick, fun dessert treat. My favorite part was the recipe for homemade cream cheese frosting! {drool}

*So for your record and mine{I'm pretending to put together a cook book}, I wanted to post it up here.

Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting:

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of one lemon {optional, but so good!}

In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Add the vanilla and lemon zest, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar.

I'm so glad that you like the recipe! It is a very true cream cheese frosting-like cheesecake and not very sweet. If you prefer really sweet, then add some more powdered sugar : )

Let me know how it turns out!
