A quick post just in time for fall, this frosting is incredibly easy to make and goes perfectly with most fall favorites like gingerbread, spice cake, pumpkin bars and all that fun stuff! Just make sure you get pure maple syrup, it costs a little more but it is well worth the taste!
2 eight oz packages cream cheese
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup PURE maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1tsp almond extract
2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp allspice (optional)
Cream butter and cream cheese together, then beat in maple syrup, extracts, followed by the powdered sugar. Beat in the kosher salt and allspice if desired and you're good to go!
PS if you really feel like wowing 'em, sub the beans of 1 vanilla bean pod for both of the extracts!
