Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting

This is my basic Cream Cheese Frosting recipe jazzed up with some pumpkin.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 24

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of REAL butter - slightly softened
  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese - slightly softened
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree - not pie filling

Instructions

  • Place the pumpkin pie spice and powdered sugar in a medium bowl and whisk to combine; set aside.
  • Place the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat on medium speed until fully combined and smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Reduce the speed to low, slowly add the powdered sugar mixture, and beat until fully incorporated and smooth, about 3 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the paddle and sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  • Turn the mixer to medium speed, add the pumpkin, and mix until fully incorporated and smooth, about 1 minute. Use immediately. I pipe mine on - but whatever works best for you is fine.
