"Fabulous frosting! But scale down to 6 servings for much easier measuring. Six servings comes out to: 1/2 pound cream cheese, (8 ounces) softened, 1/2 cup butter, softened, 3 cups confectioners' sugar..." See more and 3 tablespoons maple syrup. -- Double the above amounts if more frosting is needed...and more WILL probably be needed! Not that it didn't make enough...but it's good enough to eat right from the spoon! =) I suggest making an extra batch and storing it in the fridge for pancakes and/or french toast the next morning. Great recipe! I used it on a "Maple Pecan Butter Cake" and it was THE perfect frosting! NOTE: I used only HALF the conf sugar and with the maple syrup it was PLENTY sweet...but if you like it *really sweet...go for it and use the entire 3 cups. :) "
"Great frosting with a little modification. I used it on the "Iced Pumpkin Cookies" from this site instead of the glaze. I too like to make the measuring easier and use 1/2 cup butter, 8 oz. cream ch..." See moreeese and 3 cups powdered sugar. To make it a little less sweet I like to use 1 tsp. maple flavoring (found next to vanilla extract at the grocery store) instead of syrup. This is a great recipe to top off your favorite spice/apple/pumpkin recipes!"
