Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounces / 220g full fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups / 240g powdered sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoon pumpkin spice OR 2 tsp cinnamon

Helpful NOTES:

  • I prefer not to use butter in this frosting, however, you can add about 30g butter to this recipe and it will work well.
  • Use full-fat cream cheese.


  • This is as easy as it gets!
  • Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl and beat properly until fluffy
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it until completely combined
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The frosting will last as long as your cream cheese would last. I would use it within a week however.
