Orangesicle Dream {Frosting}

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. ;)

    Think using mandarin orange juice would have the same effect?

    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. http://alli-n-son.com/2011/06/09/key-lime-strawberry-shortcake/

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