Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

You know what would make your fall baking even better? This Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

It's fall, my favorite season of the year, and one of my favorite activities of the season is baking. I just love the flavors and smells that come with this season–cinnamon, apples, pumpkin, maple, ginger–yummmm. And while I enjoy baking my tried-and-true recipes each year (like whole wheat pumpkin chocolate chip mini muffins for my kids' lunchbox treats), it's nice to try something new once in a while.


Let's add a little zip to the usual fall baking–with cream cheese! This Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting is ah-mazing! I've always liked cream cheese frosting, but the addition of cinnamon takes it up another notch!

It's perfect for topping pumpkin muffins or cupcakes. If you've never made frosting before, it's really not that hard (and it tastes SO much better than store-bought). Give it a try!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
3 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


Beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar.

Then, blend in the cinnamon. Spread over muffins or cupcakes (or ahem–lick the beaters). Amazing flavor!

This recipe comes from the Kraft website, where I'm now a contributor. Keep an eye out on their blog for my monthly recipe posts. I have some fun seasonal Halloween and Thanksgiving content going up!

You know what else this would taste great on? Gingerbread. Ginger Snap Cookies. Pumpkin Muffins. My Whole Wheat Cinnamon Mini Muffins. A spoon (I may have tried that). Enjoy!
