Nothing in this world is quite so heavenly as a good recipe for a Cream Cheese Frosting. This is eat-it-with-a-spoon good, so beware. Let the cream cheese and the butter sit out on the counter for about an hour before you intend to make this. Don’t go ruining it by using low fat cream cheese either….
