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. ;)

1 pkg. cream cheese (softened)

2 c. powdered sugar

1 t. vanilla

1 t. orange extract

Combine and beat until fluffy.. simple as that. Enjoy on sugar cookies, orange rolls, cupcakes… OR just by the spoonful!

    oh my!!! I’m definitely trying this on the weekend! I’m making cupcakes for a friends daughters 1st birthday and have been googling frosting ideas all day. Looks line I didn’t have to look too far! Been following you for a while. Thanks for staying up to post this.

    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!? =)

    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!
