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. ;)

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!

  6. Think using mandarin orange juice would have the same effect?

  7. 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!? =)

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