Orangesicle Dream {Frosting}

I'm so excited to announce that my first book, THE I HEART NAPTIME COOKBOOK: 100 easy and delicious recipes to make than less than an hour is now available for PRE-SALE!



Umm it’s almost midnight but I had to share this recipe with you! I sort of made it up one day (okay just added in a teaspoon of orange extract to my favorite frosting recipe), and couldn’t have been happier with the results. We’re talking… EATING FROSTING BY THE SPOONFUL! Forget the cookies… just eat the frosting. ;)



Orangesicle frosting

Prep Time: 5


1 pkg. cream cheese (softened)

2 c. powdered sugar

1 t. vanilla

1 t. orange extract


Combine ingredients in a medium bowl and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of milk if needed to thin it out. Enjoy on sugar cookies, orange rolls, cupcakes… OR just by the spoonful!

    Isn’t it crazy how the tinieatbflavor change can reawaken your love for an old fave! Btw the cookies are gorgeous!!!

    Yum! Sounds delish! I can see this being a real hit on breakfast rolls. Thanks for sharing.

    Think using mandarin orange juice would have the same effect?

  7. Kristen posted on June 8, 2011 at 2:31 pm (#

    Have you ever used the spreadable cream cheese instead of the block? Does it work just the same? I have a BUNCH of extra spreadable that I froze because I got it super cheap (or free!) during a sale. Could I use it or would the consistency be wrong? Thoughts, oh wise cooking friends!? =)

    I love frosting too! Sometimes even more than the cookie or cupcake it’s on.

    I’d like to invite you to share this recipe on my weekly link-up, Sweet Tooth Friday. I hope to see you there.

    Great idea. I love to eat frosting by the spoonful – I guess I better add some orange extract to my next batch of frosting.

    Looks yummy and I bet it tastes that way too. Think I’ll need to go buy some orange extract!
