Pumpkin-Orange Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick), softened
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Blend the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, butter, orange juice, zest and vanilla in a large bowl using an electric mixer set at medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar and continue to beat until light and creamy — about 5 more minutes.

Omit the pumpkin if you like. I like this recipe on sugar cookies, with pumpkin omitted, and extra orange zest added.  Mmmy goodness

I use this recipe on Soft Pumpkin Cookies
