Jeff & I had (unfortunately) been really craving sweets. I knew we had a cake mix in the cupboard, and it was going to expire soon (gasp!), so I figured that would be a good dessert.
If only we had frosting.
Wait! We had bought six bricks of cream cheese at the store (but no bagels and no cherry Jell-o), so off I went to Pinterest to find a good cream cheese frosting recipe. I looked at a few before pinning this one:
The post, over on Our Best Bites, said that this results in frosting where you can taste the cream cheese and it's not overly sweet. I can tell you that's accurate! I did add another half cup of powdered sugar, and a smidge more vanilla, but that's it. It really does taste like spreadable cheesecake. And the recipe made so much that I have leftovers. In the fridge. And if I know what's good for me, I will put that bag in the freezer so my spoon stops finding it...
And I had all but one of the ingredients! Yeay for me!
